Georgia State University offers several short-term study abroad program options, from one week spring break programs to five week summer language programs and more. These types of programs are led by Georgia State University professors and tend to be focused on a particular topic or theme. Ranging from 10-20 participants, short-term faculty-led programs are a great way to really get to know your professors and classmates while earning Georgia State credit abroad! Students participate in lectures, site visits, excursions, and cultural tours as part of the program.
Although many of the steps are the same when applying to a Spring Break or a Maymester/Summer faculty-led program, there are very important differences in program application and scholarship deadlines, so please pay close attention to the program’s brochure page. Applications for Spring Break and Maymester/Summer programs typically open during the beginning of the fall semester. Students planning to study abroad during Spring Break and during the Maymester/Summer terms should plan to complete the following steps during the fall semester.
