Faculty Led Tours are a great way to get the study abroad experience for a week or more. The faculty teaching the course incorporated the coursework for you. The trip includes roundtrip airfare, lodging, ground transportation, site admissions, traveler health insurance and some meals. The following list shows the faculty-led tours that will take place this academic year. If you are interested in applying to any of these tours, reach out to the faculty leading the tour to find out how to register for the course (some of these trips may be restricted due to fulfilling prerequisites) and learn more about the trip. Your financial aid may apply. Please reach out to the OIP to complete a financial aid worksheet so you can turn it in to the financial aid office.
