UCSC Programs

UC Santa Cruz Faculty-led Summer Abroad programs offer students short, intensive academic courses that are complemented with a wealth of excursions and cultural activities. All of our programs are built around UC Santa Cruz courses and are led by UC Santa Cruz faculty. Many provide opportunities for students to visit non-English speaking countries while doing their coursework in English. Class sizes are small — 12-25 students — allowing for an intimate learning experience.
