GW offers students the opportunity to enroll in exceptional Short-Term Abroad Programs during the fall, winter, spring and summer. A Short-Term Abroad Program is a GW course with a faculty-led overseas component, typically ranging from 1-6 weeks. 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.
