Short-Term Abroad Proposals

The Office for Study Abroad (OSA) provides administrative support, guidance, and funding for faculty interested in creating innovative study abroad courses for undergraduate or graduate students.

Short-Term Abroad programs can be offered any semester, although this call is for summer programs. The entire course may take place abroad (1-2 months) or it may contain a shorter overseas component (1-3 weeks). Many courses meet several times on campus or online before and after going abroad, and the group size ranges from 10-25 students.

Proposals for new credit-bearing programs, once approved by the chair and dean, are evaluated by the Office for Study Abroad and International Programs for viability and fit with the program overall. Approximately 10 short-term programs run each summer.
