Faculty-Led Study Abroad Programs

Every year, ESU offers faculty-led study abroad programs for students interested in studying abroad for a shorter period.

For a description of the programs offered this academic year, please visit the following link:

Faculty-led study abroad programs are quite different from a regular semester exchange experience. In a typical faculty-led study abroad program, you will find:

  • A group of ESU students will travel together to a foreign destination from a one (1) to four (4) weeks
  • Students will travel with an ESU faculty. The faculty member will serve both as guide and professor while abroad
  • The program includes seminars, lectures, workshops and excursions
  • The program is typically centered on specific themes that might relate to the history, culture, environment, and language of the host country
  • English is typically the language of instruction

Faculty-led study abroad programs are shorter and offer limited opportunities to integrate with local students, compared to semester programs.

However, they may be a great opportunity for students who prefer structured and organized programs. Often students' agendas do not allow for a long term exchange experience.
