Faculty-Led Programs

Faculty-Led Programs are learning abroad programs led by a University of Houston faculty member. These programs are developed at the college or departmental level and have a direct correlation to students' majors, minors, or specific areas of interest or study. Learning Abroad encourages Faculty-Led Programs as the first option to students.

In advance of independent travel prior to the faculty-led portion, students must: 

  • Complete all on-campus classroom requirements such as lectures, projects, and assignments, etc. (unless otherwise specified by the faculty member)
  • Complete their learning abroad file and check out with the of Learning Abroad office 
To apply for a Faculty-Led Program, please contact the Faculty Sponsor for that particular program. Visit the Learning Abroad Start Here page (registration section) for a list of documents required for Faculty-Led Programs.
