Faculty-Led Programs

Embark on a Transformative Academic Adventure

Each year, our dedicated faculty members design, lead and teach immersive programs that seamlessly integrate with one or more courses. Our offerings provide a unique blend of education and exploration, allowing you to delve into a discipline or content area while traversing the cultural landscapes of your destination.

Join your professors and fellow students in this immersive academic expedition, where each journey is a fusion of academic exploration, cultural immersion, and personal growth. As you explore the world, create lasting memories, and forge connections, you’ll gain not only a deeper understanding of your chosen subject but also cultivate a global perspective that extends beyond the classroom.
