Deadline for summer study abroad programs is Feb. 1
Are you interested in studying abroad this summer? The deadline to apply for the three short term study abroad programs offered this year is Feb. 1. Students can choose from programs in Oxford, Verona and the Dominican Republic.
The program in the Dominican Republic is eight weeks long, starting on June 1 and running through mid-July, and it will offer an immersive experience in the Spanish language comprised of six credits of courses on the history and culture of the Hispanic Caribbean and community engagement. Students will engage in service learning in a range of settings and will reside in a homestay. This is all designed to deepen students’ language ability and understanding of the region and its peoples.
The Oxford and London program runs from May 31 to June 27. Participants will earn six credits by choosing two courses from a variety of offerings taught by faculty from Salve Regina, St. Clare’s College and Oxford University. The program emphasizes experiential learning with almost daily trips to Oxford sites that feature in the readings, and students will visit other key sites in London and Bath. Additionally, students enrolled in the European Financial Markets course will take part in a simulation of the London Stock Exchange and manage a virtual portfolio of international stocks.
The program in Verona runs May 20 through June 27 and offers students the chance to take four to six credits from a range of business, language and culture course offerings, including a course on Italian cuisine, while residing in the historic city of Verona in student apartments. Students will experience the culture of Verona, Italy, by learning about its history spanning from the ancient Romans to Shakespeare to modern artistic and cultural achievements. Field trips include Venice and Bologna.
Students interested in short term summer programs should visit Salve Regina’s study abroad web page to find detailed program fact sheets, application instructions and a link to the online application. Students should plan to attend a general drop in information session about study abroad opportunities, which are offered every Monday through Thursday at Drexel Hall at 4 p.m. during weeks when classes are in session.
