Study Abroad is Back!
by Bryce Shirley, Student Writing Intern, Global Affairs
The Global Learning Hub, within Global Affairs, is pleased to announce the 2022 lineup of programs for UC Davis Summer Abroad and UC Davis Summer Abroad Internships. Programs include faculty-led study and internship (virtual and in-person) opportunities in various disciplines—from animal and veterinary science to global health; from environment, green tech, and sustainability to business and communication.
The first step towards studying or interning abroad or virtually this summer is to create a UC Davis Study Abroad Account to receive email updates about upcoming programs of interest and key enrollment dates and deadlines. UC Davis Summer Abroad and Summer Abroad Internships are open to all University of California students. Earn eight units in just four weeks on most programs.
UC Davis Summer Abroad
Traveling with a small group of students and world-class faculty, students participating in a Summer Abroad program gain new global perspectives in focused academic areas, develop cross-cultural understanding, and forge new friendships and professional relationships. Courses are offered to fulfill major, minor, and GE requirements.

UC Davis Summer Abroad Internships
Summer Abroad Internships provide students with the opportunity to gain firsthand experience in diverse fields and within diverse cultural contexts at locations around the globe. Conveniently offered during the summer, internships are open to all students, offer guaranteed placements, improve your marketability when you apply for jobs, and enhance applications to professional schools. UC Davis faculty work with students remotely during the internship to help them get the most out of their experience. Students earn UC Davis credits and are supported 24/7 on-site by trusted program providers. Program lengths vary from 4 to 10 weeks.
