Summer Study Away

For many students, summer is the perfect time to go abroad. Whether you're looking to experience a new culture, learn a new language, deepen your knowledge of an particular area, or all of the above, Summer Study Away offers students an immersive experience outside of the stresses of the normal semester. 

About Summer Study Away

Trinity College’s Office of Study Away administers several summer study abroad programs each year: 

  • Trinity Summer Study Away programs are designed and led by Trinity faculty, who accompany students overseas, teach classes, plan and lead cultural excursions, and provide ongoing logistical support to students as they adapt to life abroad.

  • Students can fulfill major, minor and distribution requirements, especially art and foreign language.

  • Trinity Summer Study Away Programs range from three-weeks to five-weeks long, across a wide variety of disciplines. Participants earn 1-2 Trinity College credits depending on program length (1 Trinity credit = 3.5 credit  hours).

  • The advantage of a Trinity Summer Program is the high level of academics that you expect from a Trinity course, ease in application process, the classes are all Trinity College courses and the grades transfer into your cumulative GPA.
