Study Abroad Faculty Led Programs

Faculty-led Programs 2015-2016

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.
The following program will be offered during the Winter intersession:

 Incredible India

Through this Go Global experience, students will connect course content with cultural knowledge, service leadership, academic research and writing, and critical thinking. India provides excellent opportunities for authentic, cross-cultural experiences. From tutoring children in English language, to developing knowledge of the religions of Hinduism, Islam and Buddhism, to studying the culture and society, students will increase their understanding of themselves and others, while exploring Incredible India.
