Short Programs


Below is a list of short-term (two – ten week) programs, arranged by discipline, offered through UWG. Students may also participate in semester exchanges (see the Semester and Longer Programs section for details on these opportunities). Short-term programs are the best option for students who have not traveled abroad before, since the experience will be good preparation for participating in an extended program later in your academic career.
