Short Term Courses

Each year, 4-8 faculty spend up to five weeks teaching an Off-Campus Short Term Course abroad or elsewhere within the United States.

Short Term Courses are an  excellent opportunity for faculty and students to work together in the field.  Past topics have ranged from geology in Colorado, art and culture in Vietnam, to French language and culture in France.  As with the Fall Semester Abroad programs, faculty are responsible for all aspects of these courses, including itinerary, planning, recruiting students, all travel and logistical arrangements, budgeting, and coping with unanticipated events.

The Off-Campus Study Committee evaluates proposals and selects a balanced set of courses for final approval by the Academic Affairs Council. Information to help plan a course, a planning “Timeline,” an application form, and other materials (including required student forms) are available below.
