Think you can’t fit studying abroad into your academic requirements? You can! There are Short Term-Travel Courses and Semester Abroad programs that help you complete your general education and / or major requirements. Planning ahead with your academic advisor can make studying abroad feasible for any major.

Affordable Short-Term Study Abroad / Away Options

We understand for some an entire semester abroad program may be a bit too long or too expensive, so we offer a number of popular less expensive, short-term travel courses. These faculty-led global experiences are conveniently offered during Winter Term, May Term and Summer Session.

Because the time away is much shorter, the cost is far less. However, the experience is priceless.

Some of the recent destinations for UMF Short Term Travel Courses include: Austria, Canada, Costa Rica, Cyprus, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Panama, Peru, Scotland, Spain, Tanzania and Arizona.
