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! Join us as we study in exciting destinations!
