Summer 2021 Global Seminars

UC San Diego Global Seminars are five-week long summer study abroad experiences led by a UCSD professor. Students enroll in a package of two courses for a total of eight UCSD quarter units. Class sizes are between 15–28 students, so there are excellent opportunities for one-on-one interaction with some of the best faculty at UCSD. All courses are taught in English.


We are extremely sorry to announce that all summer 2021 on-site global seminars have been canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. However, there are still six virtual programs available. Extended deadline: April 1.

Send us a message through the VAC or make an appointment if you have questions.
