Short-Term Faculty Led Programs

Short-term faculty led study programs enrich the curriculum by taking learning to new dimensions outside the classroom. These programs allow participants to understand the world around them by 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. They are also a necessary alternative for students who cannot accommodate year-long or semester programs outside their home campus location. Members of the Webster faculty are invited to plan and propose short-term study courses.

These 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. The format 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 6 weeks of travel and may occur in any location around the world.

The application for Spring/Summer 2021 will open in December.
