SAST students have the opportunity to study abroad for a period ranging from a summer to a whole year. The time abroad allows them to connect the disciplinary content and learning from the classroom –on the country’s language and culture, history and anthropology, and religion and society– with a full in-country immersion experience, all within a familiar classroom setting with full student support services. There are Penn administered and pre-approved programs that are overseen by Penn Abroad --the division with a purview over these programs—and students can apply for credit transfer. In addition, there are also other programs, which students can petition for transfer credit. Learn more about these programs.
