FACULTY-LED STUDY TOURS
The Office of International Education offers several one-to-three week faculty-led study tours during the months of January, March, and May & June. In each program, a group of 15 students meets with the two faculty leaders during the semester and then travels together overseas.
Short-term study tours offer a great opportunity to gain exposure to another culture. For those students who prefer to travel with a group, or if academic requirements prevent semester long study abroad, they are an excellent option. Participants gain experience and self-confidence on these tours, and many choose to study or intern abroad for a full semester after they return.
