The Global Experience programs provide students and HPU faculty with opportunities to be immersed in cultures unlike their own. Also known as “Maymesters,” these are short-term programs led by HPU faculty members. Students can connect what they learn in the classroom with the current events and cultural legacies that they encounter while away from the HPU campus. Whether the program takes students to another U.S. state, or to the other side of the world, it is a life-changing experience!
Because enrollment is capped for Global Experience programs, students are able to consider three programs that meet their academic needs and/or personal goals. In the event that a student is not able to be placed at their top choice program, their application may be considered for their relevant alternate programs.
2019 ProgramsPlease be aware, unless an extension is listed below, the application period has closed for the 2019 Global Experience programs. Please contact the Office of Global Education if you have questions.
