Faculty-Led Study Abroad Program Development

Program Proposal Information

Faculty who are interested in developing a new study abroad program or course should contact the Director of the Center for Global Education, Sara Liang at sliang@edgewood.eduPlease note that the program development timeline is typically 1.5 -3 years in advance of offering the course. The deadlines were established to align with the following: time needed to develop a short-term study abroad program, time needed to plan the College’s study abroad program rotation, study abroad scholarship application deadlines, and course registration dates for students.

You can find the Program Director Handbook on Short-Term Study Abroad, the program proposal form, and many other resources to help faculty develop study abroad programs below. Please note that the study abroad program proposal process is separate from the general education course development cycle.
