Short-Term Programs

Winter Break, Spring Break, Maymester

Winter Break, Spring Break, and Maymester courses appear in the Schedule of Classes, but are stand-alone courses that provide exceptional opportunities for experiential learning off campus. They are officially part of a semester load and financial aid may apply to the tuition cost.

Problems Without Passports (PWP) programs are faculty-led summer courses that combine problem-based or inquiry-based learning and research with off-campus study in a foreign country or in the U.S.

Summer Departmental Programs

Summer Departmental Programs offer unique on-site learning, language study, and internship opportunities for USC credit.
