UC Davis Summer Abroad

Summer Abroad Spotlight


Australia — Urban to Outback
During our three weeks in Melbourne and one week in the remote outback, we will encounter Australia’s natural wonders and cultural complexities by examining its literature, history, film, environment, and wildlife. Readings will focus on themes of individual and national identity and the tensions between a colonial and an indigenous population. We will visit museums, art galleries, botanical parks, and nature reserves in and around Melbourne...

UC Davis Summer Abroad programs offer students short, intensive academic courses that are complemented with a wealth of excursions and cultural activities. All of our programs are built around UC Davis courses and are led by UC Davis faculty. Many provide opportunities for students to visit non-English speaking countries while doing their coursework in English. Class sizes are small — 18-30 students — allowing for an intimate learning experience. UC Davis Summer Abroad is open to all University of California students and students from other US institutions. Create a Study Abroad Account! Related: Summer Abroad Internships.
