The Office of Education Abroad is currently offering unique and enriching study abroad opportunities for the summer of 2018. With a wide range of summer study abroad programs offered to all students, there is easily a program for everyone.

According to the Office of Education Abroad, students can expand their learning experiences by acquiring insightful perspectives on diverse cultures and understanding the concentration or subject on a much deeper level through its various study abroad programs.

The Arcadia STEM Summer Research Program will take place in London, and offers programs focusing in biochemistry, biology, biomedical engineering, pharmacology and research, with its primary focus on physically conducting research. The Royal Veterinary College, an independent veterinary college of the University of London, features access to high-tech facilities that specialize in an extremely wide variety of areas, including the Center for Emerging and Endemic Diseases, pathology facilities, an equine hospital, a structure and motion laboratory and an anatomy museum. In addition to conducting research, students will also be exposed to British heritage. This same program is also offered in Australia, Ireland and Spain.

IES Abroad Vienna is a Psychology Summer Program for those who seek intern or study opportunities with a focus in the German language, pre-health, pre-med or psychology. This program will be in Vienna, and students will enroll in two or three courses which provide not only in-depth lectures, but also hands-on experiences. Additionally, German language instruction is required for students with less than one year of college-level German speaking experience. Students who participate will live in apartments that will ultimately “feel like home,” yet provide a change in scenery and environment.

The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) Summer Program offers more than 70 courses in accounting, business, economics, English, finance, international studies, law and management. Students will learn in an environment where significant developments in society, economics and politics first took place. LSE’s program hopes to address current issues through raising questions regarding the “promotion of prosperity and welfare,” not only in Britain, but on an international scale. Through this program, students will be able to pursue rigorous, sophisticated education while also exploring the heart of central London.
