Illinois State University’s Office of International Studies and Programs is thrilled to announce the release of 29 faculty-led study abroad program offerings for the 2016–2017 academic year.

Faculty-led programs are an excellent opportunity for students to earn credit quickly abroad from 10 days to one month in duration. These programs are guided by an Illinois State faculty member(s) and are designed to focus on a specific topic(s) for students. Some programs have a general education focus, while others are major and/or minor specific.

Program pages will be released shortly. Stay tuned for more information!
