These courses combine classroom study with real-world experiences, allowing students to gain international insight on their field of study.

On past Short-Term Abroad Programs, students have studied sustainable development in Panama, examined economics in Shanghai, explored the arts in Paris, and investigated higher education in South Africa.  GW Short-Term Abroad Programs travel to diverse locations for a wide variety of academic subjects.
