Make Summer Count

The summer break is a great time to earn credit, get closer to graduation and experience the world. With many programs available, there are options for nearly every academic interest and budget.

Summer Session Programs

COVID-19 continues to disrupt travel all across the globe, but it doesn't have to disrupt your education or goals. For students looking to complete course or internship credit this summer, several virtual global programs are available. According to Forbes, "Even if you can’t show up in person, you can still show up—ready to learn, work and grow as a professional. With many predicting that the future of work after the pandemic will be remote, a virtual internship [or program] can be a bootcamp for the skills you’ll need—communicating effectively, operating as part of a team, meeting deadlines, asking for help, and more—for the rest of your career."

For a list of virtual international summer programs, visit the CSUF Study Abroad Program Portal.
