Faculty-Led Study Abroad

Short Term Faculty Led Study Abroad

Faculty-Led Study Away: Abroad and in the U.S.

Each year the International Education Center sponsors faculty-led programs during the summer, lasting between 7-14 days.

These short trips, embedded into summer courses, are taught and led by experienced Brookdale faculty. They take students outside the traditional classroom and allow them a first-hand, real-life look at the history and culture portrayed in lectures and textbooks. Students generally earn 3-4 hours of course credit or service learning credit for successful completion of the course and its related travel components.
