The department offers three faculty-led programs that are taught and led by political science faculty.

Recommended Political Science Programs Abroad

Our political science faculty has curated this list of recommended abroad programs that will enhance a student's studies within the political science department. The programs come in a variety of price points, durations, geographic locations and learning formats (i.e. study, research, service learning, etc.) These programs are CSU-approved, so credits transfer.

Short Term - 1 to 8 weeks

Semester at Sea

Experience multiple cultures and countries in one education abroad experience by sailing the world on Semester at Sea’s traveling campus. Aboard the Semester at Sea ship, students will take classes while sailing between countries and then apply their classroom studies to the countries they visit. CSU is the proud home of Semester at Sea, so all academic credits taken aboard the ship will transfer for CSU students.
