Faculty-led study abroad programs provide students with the opportunity to experience study abroad with Michigan Tech faculty members. Because these courses are Michigan Tech courses, they fit easily into students’ curricula. Faculty-led courses are generally short-term courses offered during the summer semester for 6-9 credits, so they are an excellent option for students who want to try study abroad but who aren’t ready for a long-term commitment.
Michigan Tech faculty-led programs are typically offered in the summer. Courses are taken for academic credit and your travels will incorporate learning objectives. Course lengths vary up to a whole summer track, and course credits can vary between 3 - 6. These courses are Michigan Tech courses taught by Michigan Tech professors, so conflicts with transfer of credits are not an issue.
