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 10-16 short-term programs run each summer.

For more information about Short-Term Abroad, contact Sharlene Juste at sjuste@gwu.edu.
