A Faculty-Led program refers to a study abroad program led by a Western Carolina University Faculty member in an international setting for anywhere between one to eight weeks. You'll earn course credit, experience life abroad and build lifelong relationships with fellow students.
After completing a Faculty-Led Travel Course, many students pursue a study abroad exchange. Faculty-Led Travel Courses are different from Study Abroad, which is with another University and lasts anywhere between a semester and a year.
Costs vary depending on a number of factors including length of the course, location, travel expenses, etc. Financial Aid and Scholarships are available and there are courses to meet almost any budget.
Please Note: To be eligible for a Faculty-Led Travel Course you must have a minimum of a 2.75 GPA and meet any course specific criteria based on the instructor.
