Short-term programs are less than an academic semester in length and are arranged and offered for academic credit by SMU. A variety of short-term study abroad programs may be offered in the fall, spring, or summer semesters each year. Short term programs will include a course taught by SMU faculty and travel in a country or region of the world related to the course material. Travel will typically take place after a semester and have a length of ten days to three weeks. Short-term study abroad programs are ideal for students who may not be able to spend a full semester abroad, but still want to enhance their academic experience by studying outside the United States. Program length, cost, and eligibility may differ by program.
