Short-Term Programs:

Short-term international programs are unique opportunities for faculty to develop innovative and creative educational programs for CSB and SJU students, while strengthening their own international experiences. Faculty may propose programs in one of two categories: embedded programs or summer programs.

  • Embedded Programs are 4 credit courses taught during CD mod Spring semester, with 2+ weeks of travel after the end of the semester. 
  • Summer Programs are 2-8 credit courses, offered entirely abroad for 2-4 weeks.  These programs depart after graduation.

Any faculty member who would like to lead a short-term study abroad program should consult with Kevin Clancy or Joy Ruis to find  out more information about the different components which go into developing a short-term abroad program. Information on directing a short-term program is found on the Faculty Canvas site. Our office follows the The Forum on Education Abroad: Standards for Short Term Programs .
