Faculty-Led Study Tours

Costa Rica group

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 12 -15 students meet with the two faculty leaders during the semester, and then travel 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.

How to Apply:

Students must submit an application via our online application.  Please go to the "Programs" page, and select the study tour you wish to apply for and click "Apply Now." Please note that if a deadline has passed or if a tour is full, the "Apply Now" button will not appear.
