Faculty-led programs are courses instructed by WT professors that include a short-term course –related program abroad. These programs are normally developed by the faculty member for a specific major, and academic credit is given only for the courses to be instructed abroad.
While in this type of program you won’t be able to choose the location (because the faculty chooses it for you), it is a great choice if you are looking for a short-term experience (normally 2 to 4 weeks); these programs are also convenient if you have never been abroad and do not want to travel by yourself, since you have the opportunity to travel with the faculty members and a group of WT students.
Information about 2014-2015 faculty-led programs will be available in mid september.

A&M System Faculty-led Programs
Students are encouraged to take advantage of faculty-led programs offered by other universities within the A&M system. Students wishing to participate in these programs must pay the tuition and fees of the host university, but are still applicable for financial aid and scholarships from WTAMU. Please visit the A&M System Faculty-led Programs page to find out where you can study abroad on a faculty-led program.
