TCU has enjoyed a rich history of faculty-led study abroad programs. To develop a study abroad program, there is a proposal process and several phases of development. Although developing a program requires time and passion, the experience is exciting and provides invaluable experiences for our students and faculty.
The Call for Summer 2018 courses will be available in March.
If you are interested in developing a summer faculty-led program, please review this Program Development document.
The proposal process for summer study abroad programs is outlined here: http://global.tcu.edu.
If you would like to develop a faculty-led program for a time other than summer, please contact the Center.
This Toolkit should answer many of your questions regarding important dates, per diems, faculty pay rate, and other policy related information.
