The Center for International Education (CIE) administers programs that work toward establishing Adelphi University as a leader in international awareness and activity. Efforts include study abroad, campus internationalization, international faculty development and bilateral cooperation and exchange.

Out of an abundance of caution and in order to mitigate health and safety risks faced by students, faculty, and staff, Adelphi University has suspended all study abroad and international programs for the fall 2020, January Intersession, and spring 2021 semesters. Information on summer 2021 study abroad opportunities will be shared as it becomes available.

Currently, the CDC and U.S. Department of State have travel advisories in place that recommend individuals avoid all international travel due to the global impact of COVID-19. If you are interested in doing independent research on travel during the coronavirus pandemic, the best resources are the CDC and World Health Organization. Adelphi University will continue to communicate with our partners throughout the world and remains committed to international experiences.

Though study abroad is not possible this semester, we hope you will take advantage of the virtual international education opportunities below that allow you to gain global perspectives, and think about where you may study abroad in the future.

Think about your next Faculty-led Course

Faculty-led study abroad programs are short-term programs and an excellent way to earn Adelphi credit and study a special topic with an Adelphi professor in a new cultural context.

Adelphi students are able to study anywhere in the world! Here are some additional resources to explore a new location, wander through world-class museums, and find a great new book. Where will you go?
