Short-Term Faculty-Led Programs are PSU courses, designed for PSU students, taught by PSU faculty in a foreign country. These programs are customized to the unique needs of your student body, so no two programs look alike. That said, typical programs are 2-3 weeks in length, though can range from 1-10 weeks long. They are typically worth 4-8 credits, and most run during the summer term. Programs generally have 1 program leader, working with a local partner, sourced for you by the Education Abroad Team. Anyone eligible to teach for credit at PSU can teach on an IFLP, yes that means adjuncts and staff, too!
