Faculty-led Study Abroad Programs

Individual departments and faculty members could coordinate education abroad programs in specific disciplines.

Students: When you are not able to fit an entire semester or summer away into your schedule, taking part in a short-term faculty-led course will allow you to sample the international experience while learning something specific to a discipline or topic. Please contact specific departments for current information.
