Other Destinations

Occasional trips to Europe are arranged by Point Park University faculty, in which students can participate for University credit. These trips are typically offered as three-credit courses, with the travel usually occurring over the summer. In the past, destinations have included Greece, Hungary, England, Scotland, France, Canada, Ireland, Italy, and the Czech Republic.

In addition, other schools and study abroad organizations sponsor programs such as Semester at Sea.  Students are responsible for researching options and working with the program directly to meet all deadlines, requirements, and financial obligations.  Students are also responsible for meeting Point Park requirements. The Office of Student Affairs has a limited amount of other program information available, and students are welcome to visit the office to browse at their leisure.
