YSS Study Abroad Programs - 2012

YSS study abroad programs are for students wishing to study outside the United States. For those students interested in summer courses at Yale University in New Haven please click here for more information.

Yale Summer Session offers students the intellectual challenge they expect from Yale in classrooms that spill out onto the streets of the world. First-hand experience of foreign cultures is a basic component of a Yale education: it not only complements the student's academic study of international topics, but is also fundamental to the student's own personal development as a global citizen. We hope that studying abroad with Yale Summer Session will mark the beginning of a lifetime of encounters with members of the global community.
