USA Study Programs

USA Study Programs are just like our other programs—UC Davis courses taught in the field by UC Davis faculty—but the location is the United States. The focus is on intercultural topics in an American setting, bringing home the point that intercultural skills are as relevant in the US as they are overseas. Programs may be of special interest to American students who wish to explore intercultural topics closer to home, and to international students who want to explore the US, while receiving credits that satisfy major, minor and GE requirements, and without the need to get a passport or visa.
