At the University of Hartford, you can choose from more than 50 study abroad programs in countries that span the globe. Where will you go? How about Japan, South Africa, Cuba, Denmark or Italy?
College is absolutely the best time to participate in a study abroad experience. We offer programs in five categories: semester/year study abroad, UHart short-term study abroad, international internships, service-learning and field-based research. Our study abroad staff will help you find programs that fit your academic needs, personal interests and your budget.
So get your passport ready – and join the hundreds of UHart students (Hawks Abroad) who have said yes to study abroad! See for yourself why the cliché is true-study abroad will change your life!
Studying abroad through an approved University of Hartford program counts as a High Impact Practice (HIP). Students are required to engage in a number of HIPS throughout their college career, which are designed to deepen learning and promote engagement.
Semester Study Abroad
Short-Term Study Abroad*
Your very first step is to come to a Study Abroad 101 Info Session. You will learn about the study abroad basics, the application process, program options, program fees and scholarships.
Study Abroad 101 Sessions held weekly throughout the semester:
Tues & Thurs, 12:30-1:15pm, GSU 327; Sept: 7, 14, 19, 28; Oct: 3, 10, 17, 26; Nov: 2, 9, 16, 28; Dec. 7
After you attend a Study Abroad 101 Session, make an appointment with the Study Abroad Advisor.
Join students from across the state at this one day conference geared towards helping you unpack your study abroad experience! There are sessions on going abroad again (grad school, internships, work, Peace Corps), cultural adjustment and returning home, communicating the experience (developing elevator pitches and learning how to discuss your overseas experiences on your resume and in interviews), and resume reviews.
