2018 Faculty-Led Programs

2017-2018 ODU Faculty-Led Study Abroad Programs

ODU's faculty-led programs are short-term experiences that typically take place over spring break or in the summer. These programs are courses taught and led by ODU faculty members and vary in length of time abroad from 10 days to one month. Most courses are 3 credits and include some pre-departure classes and meetings, experiences abroad, and final projects upon return. Every spring, ODU faculty members have the opportunity to propose new courses for the next academic year, so the line-up of programs is different from year to year. The types of experiences you may have on these programs vary greatly depending on the location and course content.
