Given the growing spread of COVID-19, expanded travel restrictions aimed at containing the virus, and the general uncertainty regarding timelines for the lifting of travel restrictions, the School of Arts and Sciences has decided to suspend all Penn Summer Abroad programs for summer 2020.
Penn Summer Abroad offers you the opportunity to study in exciting, international locations for a span of weeks—rather than a semester—while still getting the full cultural experience. Dig deep into topics that excite you with Penn faculty experts, meet peers who share your interests, and discover new ideas and traditions around the globe.
Our programs are open to:
- Penn undergraduate students
- Domestic undergraduate students studying at an accredited college or university
- International undergraduate students studying at an accredited college or university
Penn Summer Abroad provides Penn credit, 1-2 course units (c.u.)*, for the successful completion of the program and accompanying assignments.
