Faculty-led Programs

Faculty-led study abroad programs are short-term programs that typically take place during the summer but have previously taken place over winter and spring breaks. Professors plan these trips with a wide range of educational focuses. From biology to music, gender studies to communication, and education to nursing, students from all majors find faculty-led programs that interest them. Students can even go on faculty-led programs unrelated to their major. The programs can last anywhere between two weeks to over a month and offer three to six credits. Sometimes students can choose whether or not they want to take the program for credit, which can also affect the cost of the program.

Costs

Costs of faculty-led programs can vary widely based on a number of factors such as length of trip, country of destination, and the inclusion of airfare and room and board. Previous faculty-led programs have cost anywhere from $1,500 to $5,260.
