Whether you are a faculty member who is considering a short-term program for the first time or a veteran leader with lots of experience, we are pleased that you are considering leading a program. Study abroad is a transformative and memorable experience in our students’ academic and social development. The OIP will do as much as possible to help you take on the considerable challenge of developing an excellent – and safe – program.
What’s more, consider applying for a Faculty Development Grant to do the exploratory travel and development involved in designing an excellent study abroad program for your students.
There are two different times and models for a faculty-led, short-term study abroad program. Each offers different possibilities:
Spring Semester “Break Away” Course
A “regular” Spring semester course that meets on-campus during the entire Spring semester AND includes an obligatory, integrated 8-day study trip during the Spring Break for ALL students enrolled in the course.
Summer Session Course
A course that occurs abroad during 1-6 weeks of structured study travel during Duquesne’s summer sessions during May-July.
