Travel Courses

One of the best ways to see the world is by enrolling in an on-campus course with a travel component. UT’s faculty-led travel courses allow you to continue to earn UT academic credit as you travel for one to four weeks after the on-campus portion or during a break.


Study Abroad

Through our network of over 20 providers, UT offers numerous opportunities to study abroad for an entire semester or academic year. If your curriculum does not allow for a longer time abroad, a six to eight week summer abroad is a great option.
