The College of Arts & Letters offers undergraduate students opportunities to earn academic credit through Study Away courses and internships in different locations within the United States, particularly during the summer months. These programs allow students to immerse themselves in active learning experiences enhanced by extended exposure to new cultural and residential communities. Students who are accepted to participate in Study Away programs pay a program fee to cover housing and related expenses and enroll for a specific number of credits associated with the specific program, which may last from one to ten weeks.
