Dec. 21, 2018

Proposals for Short-term, Faculty-Led Study Abroad Due Feb. 15

Members of the Webster faculty are invited to submit proposals for short-term faculty-led study abroad programs for Spring & Summer 2020. The electronic proposal form is now open.

NOTE: The proposal deadline has been extended to March 15, 2019.

About the programs

Short-term faculty-led study abroad programs are credit-bearing and have an embedded travel component that highlights and supports the course learning objectives. All programs must be led by a Webster faculty member.

The format of these programs may include but is not limited to global hybrid format (an online course with travel component), condensed on-location courses, and other approved structures. The courses are typically less than six weeks of travel and may occur in any location around the world.

See some recent examples of such programs in this story.
