Faculty-led programs give you the opportunity to take a course while traveling domestically or abroad with other USD students and faculty members. You can expect to earn three to six credits, depending on the program duration and course content. Most trips are one to two weeks.
Faculty-Led Program Benefits
- Affordable and flexible - Programs range from $1,500 - $6,000, depending on the location and duration of the trip. These prices often include most on-site costs such as lodging, meals, local transportation and cultural excursions. Also, because they are short-term, you can make them work with your academic or personal schedules during winter, spring or summer breaks
- Stay within your comfort zone - Faculty-led programs offer you the ability to travel elsewhere in the U.S. or abroad while still having the comfort of familiar faces from USD
- Form new friendships - Traveling is an intense experience that brings about new ways of thinking and acting. Since you're traveling in a tight-knit group, our programs offer you an excellent opportunity to meet other students at USD who have similar interests.
