UE Short-Term Programs

Students looking for an exceptionally well-guided glimpse into the complexities of another culture may be interested in one of our UE short-term study abroad programs.

Each year, UE faculty lead several of these short-term programs, taking smaller groups of students to locations as diverse as China and Israel. While some of these programs are designed specifically for students in a particular major, many are cross-disciplinary in content, allowing all students the opportunity to learn from and about a new culture with the guidance of a UE faculty member.

The smaller number of program participants, combined with the passion and commitment of UE's talented faculty, make these programs ideal for students seeking a broader understanding of the location where they are studying.

Upcoming 2014-2015 short-term programs include (additional programs will be added throughout the year):

  • Community and Public Health: Nursing in China
