Summer School Abroad

SSA banner

Summer School Abroad (SSA) provides San José State University students the opportunity to study abroad during the summer break. Normally lasting two to eight weeks, SSAs allow you to take classes from one of our partner universities abroad, while earning SJSU course credits. You will have the chance to study alongside college students from around the world on these international programs, making cross-cultural connections that will last you the rest of your life!

Summer School Abroad is great for students who:

  • want to work towards their graduation by earning SJSU credit on a short-term program.
  • are looking for a more independent summer study abroad experience (while still having a support system when they need it).
  • want to study abroad but do not want to leave their extracurricular activities (clubs, fraternities, sororities, athletic teams, etc.) by embarking on a longer program during the academic year.
  • are working and cannot be away from work for a semester or longer.
  • want to enjoy the perks of traveling and studying alone like other traditional study abroad programs.
  • want to study alongside college students from other countries making cross-cultural connections that will last you the rest of your life!
  • want to gain a competitive edge in their respective job markets by developing soft skills highly sought out by recruiters. Check out this news article on how studying abroad can improve your employability.
  • are non-traditional students who cannot be away from family for a semester or longer.
