Faculty Deadline for Summer 2016 Short-Term Study Abroad Proposals

Aug. 15, 2015, is the deadline for submitting short-term study abroad proposals to the Office of Study Abroad with travel during summer break 2016. Short-term programs can be faculty-led intensive face-to-face (traditional) courses or hybrid programs that combine online work with travel and study. Many faculty led programs are also a necessary alternative for students who cannot accommodate international year-long or semester programs.

These programs enrich the curriculum by taking learning to new dimensions outside the classroom, allowing participants to better understand the world around them and immersing them in other languages and cultures. The learning experiences afforded by these programs help support the University’s mission of transforming students for global citizenship and individual excellence. 

Short-term faculty-led program have included travel to:

  • Europe: Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Czech Republic, Spain, United Kingdom (England and Scotland), Switzerland, the Netherlands, and Turkey (Istanbul);
  • Middle-East: Israel
  • Africa: Namibia and Rwanda
  • Asia: China, Japan, Thailand, and Singapore
  • North America: Canada
  • Central America and Caribbean: Costa Rica, Cuba
  • South America: Brazil
  • United States: New York City, Orlando, Taos

NOTE: Schools and Colleges may have earlier deadlines. Faculty should check with their department chair and/or dean.

All proposals must be endorsed by the submitter’s Department Chair and Academic Dean.  If the course is to be cross-listed with another department, that department’s chair and dean must also sign off on the proposal. Proposed courses must carry a minimum of three (3) credit hours.

Deliver completed proposals to the Office of Study Abroad, Sverdrup #207, 470 E. Lockwood, MO 63119.
