Short-Term Programs

Fall 2017 / Spring 2018 Travel-Embedded and Winter Term 2018 Study Abroad and Study USA

Elon offers more than 35 innovative short-term programs during Winter Term, fall (Thanksgiving Break), spring (Spring Break), and summer. Courses range in cost and typically include round-trip airfare, all lodging and transportation, and entrance fees for museums, cultural sites, and events related to the course. On many of these courses you will travel to different cities in one country or to multiple countries. These courses are intensive experiences, and you will be with a group of 16-32 Elon students and one to two Elon program leaders.

  • Winter Term: These intensive three- to four-week, four-semester-hour courses typically include a mandatory one-semester-hour predeparture course the preceding fall term. Students earn a total of five semester hours.
  • Semester Travel-Embedded (fall spring). These programs are semester-long courses taught on campus that include a travel component either over Thanksgiving Break or Spring Break.
  • Summer: These programs range in length from three to six weeks and typically earn between four and six semester hours of credit.
