Winter Intersession programs provide the benefits of experiential
education while accommodating students with specific academic
interests or time concerns. As with all our programs, the countries
where you study will be an essential part of the classroom
experiences through options such as site visits, cultural tours,
lectures, and service learning. In addition, our programs leave you
time to explore your surroundings independently, allowing you to
become more immersed in your new home cities.
Winter Intersession benefits
- Top NYC Faculty: Our faculty are incredibly
dedicated and dynamic, and their passion for the subject matter and
location comes through in their careful planning.
- Focused Coursework: Winter programs often
offer disciplines—and courses—not typically represented on study
abroad programs, including graduate opportunities.
- Great Destinations: Based on areas of faculty
expertise, our winter program locations may vary from year-to-year,
but they’re always culturally and historically rich.
- Affordable Fees: Because winter programs tend
to be shorter in duration (typically 1-2 weeks), fees are generally
lower than with other options.
In recent years, winter programs have travelled to locations
such as Chile, Dubai, the Galápagos Islands India, Italy, and
France, with courses in the following areas of concentration:
Biology, Business, Communications, Fine Arts, and Languages &
Financial Aid Opportunities:
We strongly encourage students participating in our
winter programs to apply for the Licari Scholarship. This
scholarship is open to both undergraduate and graduate students and
is awarded based on need.
