Want to immerse yourself in a foreign country but don’t want to spend an entire semester away? Ithaca College offers many valuable short-term study abroad experiences that take place outside of the academic calendar. Some connect international fieldwork to classroom research. Others focus on foreign internships or are service-learning projects led by committed faculty members. More than 500 IC students took advantage of short-term study abroad options last year. New programs pop up all the time, but here are a few that have become annual favorites.

But as I walked onto the Tube with my fellow Ithaca College students, we prepared for the greatest eight weeks of our lives.
