Program at a Glance

The Global Summer Program (GSP) brings together students from eleven of the world's top research universities to discuss critical issues in a global perspective and to collaborate on multidisciplinary approaches to these problems.  This unique experience challenges students to think creatively and to develop cross-cultural conversations and connections. In summer 2017, there are 22 courses to choose from. 2 of those courses will be offered  at Yale.

Students live in residence at the host university and engage with their peers outside the classroom in activities designed to augment study in the classroom.  All courses are taught in English and are taught by faculty from the host university. 

Note: The Global Summer Program is open to Yale students and IARU partner university students. Click here for an Advising Guide of all GSP courses.

Quote: Attending the 2015 Global Summer Program course at Yale was a tremendously beneficial experience for me. I learned how to think better, both critically and analytically. Though I am a Yale student, it felt like I was studying abroad myself with the diverse backgrounds of the students in the course.
