Studying abroad during the Winter, Summer or Spring Break sessions is an excellent introduction to life in another country and also serves as an alternative to those who do not have the flexibility to participate in semeter study abroad programs.
Every year the roster of short-term faculty-led study abroad programs may change and are announced over the summer and fall of the academic year.
Roger Williams University reserves the right to cancel Faculty-led programs offered during the academic year for insufficient enrollment or for any other reason. Should it prove necessary to do so the school will notify all registrants.
