Faculty-Directed & Departmental Programs

Below is a list of faculty-directed and departmental programs that are currently available or have run in the past. Students should always consult the appropriate contact person to verify requirements and procedures associated with participation in these programs prior to submitting an application.

Faculty-directed education abroad programs take place during spring break and summer, and vary in length from 10 days to one month. Students spend the majority of their time abroad together, participating in activities and excursions as a group. These short-term courses are designed and taught by CWU instructors and provide students with departmental credit. In addition to standard assignments, coursework includes a combination of experiential learning activities, such as cultural excursions, guest speakers, and cultural performances.
