Faculty Led Programs
Oglethorpe offers traditional semester (fall, spring, and summer) programs which can include student exchange or partner providers as well as highly popular short-term programs (2-5 weeks) led by Oglethorpe faculty during a semester break and summer.
Faculty led programs are usually announced months in advance of departure, and each program will be taken for academic credit. The professor guiding the program determines the course content, and the students upon return to Oglethorpe work independently on a project and/or paper under the professor’s supervision.
Students travel with their fellow students and friends, stay in excellent hotels, tour archaeological sites, museums, and monuments in every city visited. In addition, students will also have the opportunity to attend plays, musicals, and special events while abroad.
These well-planned, insightful programs offer unique opportunities for students who desire to see the world and experience it directly, earn credit while doing so, gain an introduction to the language, food, and customs of other cultures, and invest in their own intellectual and interpersonal development.
Students who qualify can also use financial aid for these programs. All students MUST take for credit and pay the tuition for the course associated with that program. Students apply for faculty led programs using ViaTRM just like a traditional semester program.
