Short-term programs are offered in the summer and during Winterim (January). They vary in length from three to ten weeks and carry from 3 to 9 credits. Most are specific to particular majors or minors, (i.e. Music, Communication, Natural Resources, English, Psychology, etc.) but many are open to students with a general interest in the subject area/s.

- CHINA: UWSP does not currently offer programs in China. We strongly advise students interested in studying abroad in China to explore some of the options open to them through other UW-System universities. Click here to see a list. For these program, you need apply directly to UW-System university's study abroad office and NOT through the International Programs Office at UWSP. However, as with all non-UWSP study abroad programs, there is a form to complete in the UWSP International Programs Office to assure that you can maintain your UWSP student status during your participation -- see the UWSP International Programs Office staff.
All students participating in ANY non-UWSP International Programs MUST fill out this form: Non UWSP Study Abroad and Independent UWSP Study Application.docx
* Requires Previous Language Study
International Programs can assist students in finding credible alternatives for UWSP students whose schedules and/or interests require them to seek study or tours run by other institutions. A good place to start is by visiting the unofficial UW-System Study Abroad website
