Summer/Winter/Spring Programs

If you are looking for a shorter program that takes place during the summer or winter, then attending a Summer or Winter Study Abroad Program is the perfect fit for you! Summer Programs take place during the Summer A or Summer B Terms, and they typically last between 2 to 5 weeks. Winter programs take place during December-January winter break. These programs have both domestic and international destinations, and they are taught in English by Embry-Riddle (ERAU) Faculty. Summer and Winter Programs allow students to experience a Study Program Program without spending a complete Fall or Spring Semester away.
