UC San Diego Global Seminars are five-week long summer study abroad experiences led by a UCSD professor. Students enroll in a package of two courses for a total of eight UCSD quarter units.

Study Abroad Opportunities

Many students stop by Rady’s advising office to ask whether study abroad classes can count toward their business or accounting minor. The answer is Yes! Studying abroad can be an incredibly fun and enriching experience. College isn’t only about what you learn in the classroom, afterall! We highly encourage students to study abroad through one of UCSD’s for-credit programs.

How do I get started?

Take a look at our Study Abroad Information Page for more info on how to sign up and how to apply your study abroad courses toward your minor.
