Faculty-Led Programs Abroad

SUNY Oneonta offers a variety of short-term, faculty-led programs abroad throughout the year that vary by location, department and cost. These are courses taught by SUNY Oneonta faculty for credit abroad and include coursework, cultural experiences, and often service learning opportunities. Typically, a faculty-led program takes place during breaks, either Summer, Winter, or Spring, and can last anywhere from 1 to 4 weeks. These programs give students the opportunity to learn in a completely new setting, and often on unique subject matters not regularly offered on campus.

Summer 2021 Faculty-Led Programs Abroad have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
