Virtual International Programs

Virtual programs bring the world to you! Spend a semester, summer or winter term virtually exploring the world via exciting global academic experiences or virtual international internships.


No Flight or Travel Required - No passport yet? No problem. Participation in a virtual program experience allows you to explore the world and seek cultural engagement without the costs and logistics of international travel. (You can still be prepared for travel later by applying for a US passport via the SDSU Passport Office.)

  • Affordability - Save a lot of money! A virtual experience allows program organizers the opportunity to focus on building innovative and engaging global academic content for the virtual participant without addressing travel or room & board needs, so overall costs are lower and the experience more accessible.
  • Health & Safety - Virtual experiences offer opportunities to stay healthy and safe at home while engaging globally.
  • Choice and Flexibility - Mix and match courses, and if desired simultaneously enroll at multiple foreign institutions, or combine study with a remote internship or service-learning experience
