We can’t think of a better way to earn college credit than to earn those credits while studying abroad. Students’ schedules are busier than ever, and some required courses absolutely must be taken during a particular semester. For some, it’s nearly impossible to squeeze in a semester study abroad experience – so why not spend a summer abroad instead?
World Endeavors offers plenty of options for summer study – but which one is right for you?
