Illinois State University’s Office of International Studies and Programs is pleased to announce the faculty-led study abroad program offerings for the 2017–2018 academic year.

Faculty-led programs are an excellent opportunity for students to take ISU courses 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.
