Faculty-led programs are short, intensive study abroad experiences typically offered during the summer semester or semester breaks. They are faculty-designed and meant for students to travel abroad together and complete a specific project, academic focus, or pursue an activity related to the students' mission or purpose. These types of programs may also be added as an overseas component, to a course taught on campus. They are usually credit bearing; although, they may be noncredit bearing. Faculty-led programs are high-impact global experiences that enable students to see their major, discipline, or research in a broader context, and enhance their future employment opportunities.
