Study Abroad and Field Research

Engage with other cultures abroad while earning your degree.

Adelphi University’s study abroad programs give our students the opportunity to experience a different culture and earn academic credit in the process. Domestic and international field research courses are also available.

Short-Term Faculty-Led Programs

What better way to get to know a new culture or immerse yourself in field research than with an Adelphi faculty member? Programs led by Adelphi faculty are offered during the January intersession, spring break, and summer session.
