Global Programs

Welcome to Penn State Scranton Global Programs, delivering distance education courses with short-term travel to destinations worldwide.

Each semester we offer a selection of courses with an embedded program. Each course in each program includes pre-travel and post-travel coursework to be completed on an independent study basis, working with the instructor through distance education technologies on one's own schedule and at one's own pace.

Travel components of the courses are six to nine days in length, taking place during Spring Break. We aim to bring international academic and immersion experiences within the financial reach of as many Penn State students as possible. Accordingly, travel arrangements are designed to be very affordable, and Scholarship Opportunities are available.
