Global Seminars

Each summer, Princeton University students spread out around the globe to explore the international dimensions of their academic interests in six-week courses taught by University faculty in locations at the heart of the seminar’s subject matter. PIIRS is pleased to announce its Global Seminars and an African Studies Seminar for the summer 2022. Applications open on November 1, 2021. 

Celebrating 15 years of seminars and travel abroad! The Global Seminars were launched in 2007 with the collaboration of the Office of International Programs. To date, more than 1,000 undergraduates have participated in 65 seminars in 24 countries. Each seminar, open to 12 to 15 freshmen, sophomores and juniors, is led by Princeton faculty who have created a unique six-week program of study that can only be fully experienced by traveling to the city and country at the heart of its subject matter. Daily lectures by seminar faculty and guests, daily language classes, weekend excursions to sites relevant to the course make up the course prospectus.
