Summer Study Abroad Communication Programs
The Human Communication summer study abroad program is one of the most popular faculty-directed programs at ASU. We offer students a unique opportunity to study communication in different cultural contexts while providing them with opportunities to see plays in London’s West End, enjoy the countryside of Ireland, and learn about the castles and kilts of romantic and very cosmopolitan Edinburgh.
London's many celebrated historical sites include Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London, and Trafalgar Square. Its museums and galleries contain collections of unparalleled scope, and its theater companies are the finest in the world.
Since its founding in the Middle Ages by Viking raiders, Dublin has played a major role in Ireland's turbulent history. The largest city in Ireland, Dublin today is the center for education and the arts. Popular attractions Dublin Castle, St. Patrick's Cathedral and Christ Church Cathedral, and the Guinness Factory are some of the landmarks to visit during our stay in Dublin.
A city of stunning architecture and breathtaking views, Edinburgh is the center of Scotland's great culture and fascinating history. Edinburgh Castle is the home of the Scottish Crown Jewels and the new Scottish Parliament Building is an architectural marvel.
This program is open to all students who have completed COM 100, pending approval by the faculty director.
