Faculty Education Abroad Information
for faculty-led programs and courses abroad
Programs Abroad Options
1: Teach a course at Harlaxton College (Grantham, England)
With this option, the faculty can focus on the academic content only and does not need to make group travel arrangements.
2: Lead a faculty-directed program abroad (through an ETSU partner institution or organization):
A faculty-directed program abroad is when a faculty travels with a group of students to another country. A majority of programs are for-credit in the Summer, with students participating in coursework in the morning and participating in group excursions in the afternoon. However, faculty may also lead not-for-credit, or experiential, programs abroad during other terms.
Programs will need a faculty teacher/instructor and an on-site director. Faculty can choose one of the following options to create their program abroad:
- Organizations that assist with travel arrangements and course-building:
- An ETSU Partner Institution
