Travelearns (Short-Term Study Abroad Programs)

Travelearns are short term, faculty led study abroad programs. These allow students to continue working toward their degree while completing a short-term study abroad program for 7-10 days .

Travelearns tend to focus on a specific topic and may include lectures, internships, research and excursions. Travelearns at Kean University primarily travel abroad, but occasionally occur domestically.

Students at Kean University have three main options for studying abroad: our WKU Exchange, one of our many Spring or Summer Travelearns, or participating in a program provider trip. Students can choose the experience that best suits their interests, ranging from studying abroad for a full academic year, semester, or 7-10 days.
