Information for Faculty
Welcome to the exciting world of international studies! Duquesne University's Office of International Programs is here to facilitate the integration of international experience and perspectives into the fabric of our University. 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.
There are two formats into which you can academically situate a study abroad component:
Spring "Break Away" courses: a course that meets on-campus during the entire Spring semester BUT also includes a manditory, integrated study trip abroad during the Spring Break. All students that take a Spring Break Away Class MUST participate in this study trip.
Summer Faculty-Led Course: a course occurring abroad lasting 1-6 weeks during the summer (May-June)
