Summer Study Abroad Programs

The University of Dayton's Summer Study Abroad programs are designed to meet the academic requirements of current UD students enrolled in any discipline. The courses allow students to integrate classroom knowledge with cultural experiences.

UD's Summer Study Abroad Program is a unique study and travel experience. The program usually offers a choice of six sites during the months of June and July, with students spending four-and-a-half weeks at each program site. In the past, sites have included fascinating cities such as Dublin, Florence, London, Madrid, Moscow, Paris, Rome, Shanghai, Sydney, and Vienna.

Courses from a variety of disciplines in the humanities, social sciences, business, education, and engineering are conducted by University of Dayton professors. Courses utilize on-site resources to enhance the learning experience and include a one-credit, on-site orientation class. Students who choose to study at two sites could earn up to one full semester of credits.

To participate, students must be in good academic standing and/or able to meet the admission requirements of the University of Dayton. Full two-site participation costs about the same as one semester on the UD campus.

Summer Study Abroad in Languages

For students who wish to develop their spoken and written foreign language skills, the College offers intensive study programs in Canada, Chile, Germany, and Spain through the Department of Languages. Current UD students have the opportunity to improve their foreign language skills while integrating their personal experiences and discoveries with material discussed in class lectures.

University of Dayton professors design the courses to incorporate contemporary use of the language and to explore the culture, government, and history of the city and nation in which they are teaching. In the recent past, this study abroad opportunity has been made available to students during the months of May, June, and July.

To participate, students must be 18 years old and have some background in the language coincident with the country they will be visiting.
