Short-Term Study Abroad

SF State Extended Learning is pleased to offer short-term study abroad programs. These programs offer students the opportunity to immerse themselves in aspects of another culture—the language, literature, history, art, and archaeology—as well as have the experience of living and traveling abroad. These programs are distinguished by the offering of both the pure delight of travel and the joy of learning in order to achieve that special understanding of the destination you visit.

Contact the short-term study abroad department at or 415.817.4264 for more information on travel programs, study tours, and itineraries.

New short-term study abroad programs are added throughout the year. Please return to this site for updated information.
