As technology makes the world smaller and brings cultures together an essential skill in any professional field is understanding how to navigate the cross-cultural workplace. Spending time abroad you will give you a deeper understanding of culture, creativity, innovation, and multiple perspectives on your chosen field.

These programs are planned directly by ERAU faculty. There are two different ERAU faculty led program models:

Summer Programs

A duration of 4-6 weeks during the summer. Some programs are specifically tailored toward a certain degree program, while others encompass all majors. The entirety of the program takes place abroad.

Semester Programs

Semester-long on-campus course work with required travel during the winter or summer breaks. Travel duration is approximately 2 weeks and is a required course component.

All of the courses are taught in English (except language courses), and at least one of the courses is taught by ERAU faculty. You will travel with a group of ERAU students, so you should feel right at home with your fellow Eagles.

"When you arrive to a place you’ve never been to, a place where you do not speak the language, a place you will be exploring, millions of emotions run through your head. You can be excited, scared, sad, and happy all at once. However, when it is time to leave, you do not want to. It is then when you realize, ‘I will be visiting this place again someday!"
