Your GCU Guide Awaits—Anywhere on the Globe

Advanced faculty-led study abroad programs to deliver safe, academically rigorous, and culturally rich international experiences. Students have the opportunity to participate in education abroad under the leadership of a Georgian Court professor and earn academic, experiential, or service-learning credits.

These are different from other study abroad opportunities. Students have GCU faculty with them during the trip, so you get the advantage of someone who knows the area and can therefore provide guided academic learning in an international setting.

Faculty-led programs have many benefits:

  • They are generally less-expensive than other international program options.
  • Students and their families feel secure because a faculty member will accompany students abroad.
  • Students who participate often feel a sense of accomplishment, community, leadership, and an increased sense of purpose and direction.
  • They enable faculty to weave a global perspective and experience into the curriculum.

GCU sponsored faculty-led programs include:

  • Art and Art-Making—Portugal—Art Department
  • Tropical Ecology—Costa Rica—Biology Department
  • Literary Paris—France—English Department
  • The Buenos Aires Dance Project—Argentina—Dance Department
  • World Wars and Holocaust—Netherlands, Belgium, France and Germany—History, Geography and Politics Department
  • Multicultural Psychology (Honors)—Italy—Psychology Department
  • Spanish Language and Culture—Spain—World Languages Department
  • Holistic Health, Sacred Sites, Chinese History and Culture—China—Exercise Science and Holistic Health
  • Social Media Campaigning—Italy—Digital Communication
