Teaching, Research and Seminars Abroad
- Developing Faculty-Led Study Abroad Programs. Leading a group of students for study abroad is an excellent way to enhance the student learning experience, integrating knowledge learned in the classroom with real world experience. Most faculty-led study abroad programs are offered in the summer for 3 to 6 weeks with students typically earning three to six credit hours. A faculty member interested in developing a study abroad program should discuss the program and its academic content with her/his chair and dean. The faculty member should also meet with International Education Center staff, which will assist in designing programs that meet Georgia College and University System of Georgia academic, administrative, and safety requirements. Faculty proposing programs should thoroughly review the Director's Handbook (requires unify credentials)and submit a completed Study Abroad Program Proposal (pdf) to the International Education Center in both electronic and hard copy versions with required signatures by April 1 for programs that will run the following summer.
- Teaching on a Collaborative Study Abroad Program. There are also opportunities to teach on several collaborative study abroad programs within the University System of Georgia. Applications to teach on these programs are usually due in March or April for programs offered the following summer. More details can be found at the program web sites.
- Teaching at one of our partner universities. Opportunities exist for faculty to teach at one of Georgia College’s partner universities. Interested faculty should discuss their proposals with their department chairs and International Education Center staff.

Academic Work / Research Abroad
Faculty proposing to take students abroad for research projects and field work or to supervise internships abroad should submit an Academic Work Abroad Program Proposal (doc) at least 8 weeks prior to departure. Academic Work Abroad is distinctly different from Faculty-Led Study Abroad and typically involves one to four students with whom the faculty member has already been working.
