Arts and Sciences Summer Immersive Study Options
"Off the Grid Living" in Taos

The College of Arts and Sciences offers a variety of immersive study opportunities this Summer 2016 for undergraduate and graduate students. Students will have the chance to earn college credit while spending the summer exploring such faraway places as Europe and Africa, or "off the grid" in New Mexico.

These programs offer unique opportunities for immersion and include organized excursions and co-curricular activities that enhance what students learn in the classroom. 

Are you a student, or do you know a student who has thought about studying overseas but haven’t found time in a rigorous college schedule to dedicate an entire semester abroad? Ever wanted to gain an international experience but thought it might be too costly? A short-term summer study abroad program may be your perfect solution. 

Learn more about Study Abroad options and assistance -- including upcoming deadlines -- from the Office of Study Abroad.
