Summer & Intersession

Each summer, OIP organizes multiple short-term, experiential programs and internships abroad that change annually to reflect specific needs and interests of SIS students. Programs are led by SIS faculty or hosted by partner institutions in which SIS students enroll, and are ideal for students interested in a specific region or topic area and wish to interact with local leaders, conduct field research, or pursue a challenging internship.
