We're happy you are interested in learning more about designing and leading a short-term study abroad program. Please read each of our "Developing a Short Term Program" web pages in detail; they contain important information about application instructions and deadlines. 

The Center for Global Engagement (CGE) is proud to boast that we've continously ranked #1 in the country among similar university types for student participation in our short-term programs. This is due, no doubt, to the quality of programs that faculty like you construct for our students every year. 

We look forward to working with you on designing a program. The world awaits! 

Program Types

We are committed to fostering faculty development opportunities with a global emphasis – including teaching a short-term course abroad. Faculty can lead programs during the following terms: 

Winter Session
Two weeks in January | 3 credits 

Spring Break
Embedded in a spring semester course | 3 credits

Summer Sessions
Three to eight weeks anytime throughout the summer | 3-9 credits (depending upon program length)

New Program Directors

Program Directors who are new or who plan to offer new programs must schedule a meeting with Taryn Roberts, the Director of Study Abroad, prior to proposing a program.

In this meeting you will discuss location, cirriculum, feasability of program, and other important aspects of your proposed program. 

Academic Approval

In further preparation for submitting a proposal, faculty should be in communication with their academic departments and colleges regarding their plans and curriculum. While an official course approval will be signed by your AUH and College Dean, you must touch base with your department prior to submitting a proposal. Your program proposal requires specific information on the following topics:

  • Dates
  • Locations
  • Curriculum
  • Program Description
  • Other faculty and personnel who are part of the program
Proposal Deadlines

Proposals for Winter Session 2022, Spring Break 2022, and Summer Sessions 2022 are due by August 1, 2021. 

Both new and returning Program Directors must submit a completed proposal through Terra Dotta.

To apply, visit our program proposal page for further instructions and the application link.
