Faculty-Led Study Abroad

Each year, a number of Winthrop faculty members combine coursework with on-site international experiences by leading a short-term faculty-led study abroad program.  Faculty members interested in leading short-term study abroad programs for Winthrop students should plan to meet with the International Center for additional information including assistance with the development, planning, and execution of the program.  A current list of upcoming faculty-led study abroad programs is located in the Winthrop Study Abroad Portal.  Additionally, the Short-Term Faculty-Led Program Proposal Form and Faculty-Led Study Abroad Handbook can be downloaded below.
