Study Abroad in Warsaw, Poland
Study abroad in Warsaw means studying in one of Europe’s most resilient cities. Reduced almost entirely to rubble and ashes in WWII, Warsaw has risen again to become a major regional economic and political center. Warsaw is filled with green spaces, cultural events, and unique cafes and museums. Study abroad in Warsaw means studying in a country whose dramatic past means that it continues to take its current domestic and international challenges seriously.
What Can You Study Abroad in Warsaw?
Fall and Spring study abroad in Warsaw is primarily offered through our Security and Society program, which allows you to take a range of challenging courses in English on topics related to international relations, security, and diplomacy. Visiting students often take Polish language or one of several other languages offered each semester.
During the summer, our Security and Society Summer School offers several intensive courses to improve your understanding of the challenges societies face today. An optional research internship with the Terrorism Research Center is another feature in both summer and academic year terms. Interns engage in research projects leading to publication.
Other opportunities may include joining faculty led programs, spring break programs, and more. See our full lists of study abroad offerings below or contact us about faculty-led or other custom options.

At Stetson, we’ve used SRAS to arrange all of our student study abroad trips for the past five or six years. During that time we’ve sent dozens of students on summer- and semester-long programs in Moscow, St Petersburg, Nizhny Novgorod and Irkutsk. In every interaction I’ve had with them, SRAS has been prompt, reliable, knowledgable, courteous and quick to lend a hand when needed.

Just yesterday my student successfully defended her honors thesis on environmentalism around Lake Baikal, a project that would not have been possible without the fieldwork that she conducted on her SRAS study abroad program in Irkutsk. I hope to see more such projects in the future and will keep directing students to SRAS programs!
