Upcoming Study Abroad Trips
The Judy Genshaft Honors College hosts a number of study abroad trips each year. These programs allow Honors students to travel internationally, enjoy culturally enriching opportunities, and participate in academic and service-oriented experiences.
To accommodate diverse student schedules, Honors international programs are offered in three formats:
- Beyond the Classroom: Following a semester-long program-specific Honors course, students travel abroad for an average of 10 to 21 days to explore the region, culture, and language they explored in class.
- Summer Programs: These programs range from one week to one summer session and include Honors coursework, travel, and program-specific experiential learning opportunities.
- Semester Program: The Honors Semester in Exeter program is a semester exchange program at the world-renowned University of Exeter in southwest England. In this program, students take courses both at the University of Exeter and USF Honors courses.
