Summer Abroad with Duquesne


Did you know?: Research has shown that travel outside one's country can dramatically change the way you view the world.

Duquesne University offers a wide range of opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to go abroad as a class led by Duquesne faculty.  "Short-Term" Study courses are for 1-6 weeks and 3-6 credits and occur during the summer.

Consider the benefits of a study abroad experience:
  • Prepare for future jobs: employers interview and hire individuals with international experience.
  • Broaden your understanding of human and natural diversity.
  • Fosters your flexibility, adaptability and independence.
  • Become a "global citizen". 
Summer Programs

Duquesne University Faculty take students to various locations every summer, from Asia to Africa and Europe to South America.  Consider taking the leap!
