Global Seminars

Global Seminars are short-term study abroad programs led by CU faculty members. They usually take place during the summer and combine academic course content with immersion in an overseas setting. Most Global Seminars are between 2.5 and 5 weeks, and students earn 3-6 credit hours. Application deadline: March 2, 2021

Most application deadlines for Summer 2021 global seminars have been moved to March 1, 2021. See individual program exceptions to the deadline in the list below, or visit the Education Abroad website for a complete list. Please continue to monitor education abroad program impacts related to COVID-19.
