International Programs

Summer / Short Term Programs

Each summer, Study Abroad offers Cedarville courses in international locations. These courses are taught by Cedarville professors and are open to Cedarville students who have a 3.0 GPA and have completed two terms at Cedarville University (College Now terms do not count). Some courses are specialized for specific majors and others are general education courses. They are ideal for students whose major do not have the flexibility of a semester abroad. The locations vary each summer.

Most trips are under $5,000 including tuition, program fee, and lodging. Tuition for the summer of 2020 is $831 per credit hour. Airfare is not included, but group flights may be available with students paying for their flight cost individually. Summer students will need to complete the Study Abroad application and health screening and meet with Study Abroad by January 15. Below is the list of course offerings for summer 2020:
