Departmental Programs

Currently planned HHS Study Abroad Departmental Programs are usually shorter itineraries that consist of an on-site Purdue faculty member who travels with and teaches a group of Purdue students. The length and number of credits earned depends on each program. There are exceptions to the rule, however, so details should be reviewed thoroughly.

Tentative Study Abroad Programs for 2016-2019

View the list of tentative HHS Study Abroad Departmental Programs. Please keep in mind that this list is tentative and that faculty are not being held to these times or places. We will review these every year to update them as necessary to gauge interest from the standpoint of faculty and students.
