Other Summer Programs

Study Abroad:

UCSC students have a variety of different options to choose from when selecting a study abroad program. You can participate on short or long term programs, including summer, quarter, semester, or year-long study abroad programs. In addition, while many students choose to study abroad during their junior year, there are also options for sophomores, seniors, and graduate students. Located in the Division of Global Engagement, 101 Classroom Unit Building, the office is open Monday - Friday from 9:00am -12:00PM & 1:00PM - 4:00pm.

Participants include people of all ages and walks of life—distinguished scholars, graduate students, undergraduates, retirees, young professionals, high school teachers, anyone who loves to read and who enjoys long Victorian novels. The Universe can be taken for UCSC Undergraduate Credit.

U.S.-Denmark Summer Workshop on Renewable Energy:

A unique educational initiative developed by leading universities in Denmark and California. The three-week workshop starts with one week of online preparation and continues with two weeks of lectures, seminars and field trips in California. Participants will learn about the economics, politics, science, and technology behind RE implementation from leading experts, while exploring communities and relevant energy sites where such technology is in place or currently being implemented. The interdisciplinary approach and holistic perspective allows students with various academic backgrounds to interact and develop concrete final project ideas, while targeting today’s energy problems from different angles.
