Fitchburg State students are seeing the world this summer, taking part in faculty-led programs to other continents while earning university credits.

Among the courses and destinations this su

This summer, students will also be traveling

 to Spain to study education, and another group will go to Costa Rica to study tropical ecology. Domestic travel is also on the menu, with members of the game design program traveling to Los Angeles and Hawaii this summer (with a trip to Japan planned for 2023).
