Current & Upcoming Programs

Due to the current global pandemic’s ongoing health and safety concerns, travel restrictions, and subsequent logistical and ethical travel implications, all Study Abroad Office-sponsored programming has been suspended through spring semester 2021.The originally scheduled (2020-2021) winter break programs, Berlin, Germany and Music in Europe, have been postponed to summer 2021. Our Malawi and Tanzania programs have been officially cancelled.

Program planning is moving forward for the summer and fall term study abroads. Ongoing monitoring and assessment of global travel conditions will take place, and decisions regarding program viability will occur at least one month prior to scheduled departure dates, if needed.
