Academics

UC Davis Summer Abroad Internships is an academic program that aims to enhance students’ education by incorporating academic coursework with experiential learning outside of the classroom setting.  This program carries a total of 8.00 quarter units in eight weeks. 

Students on Summer Abroad Internship programs earn regular UC Davis course credit which may be used to fulfill degree, major, minor, General Education (GE) requirements. UC Davis students can use Summer Abroad courses to fulfill their academic requirements as listed in the General Catalog. Students from other campuses should consult with the academic advisors from their home campuses to determine whether courses taken on our programs may be used to fulfill their specific academic requirements. 

Please see the Academics Student Resource page to learn more about applying Summer Abroad coursework toward your major/minor/General Education requirements.
