Whether you want to experience another culture, explore a new academic subject, engage in a service project, or catch up on credits to graduate on time, short-term study away programs have an opportunity for you. Typically offered during Winter J Term and Summer Session, URI offers a variety of programs to explore.

URI Faculty-Led Programs

Faculty-led programs (FLPs) are URI academic courses taught off-campus in the U.S. and around the world by URI faculty and staff. On average, programs are 2.5 weeks in length, with approximately 10-14 students on each program. These academic courses are open to URI and non-URI students, and course topics and locations can vary each year.
