Faculty-Led Programs

Normally, each year a few EWU faculty members design, lead, and teach study abroad experiences for students. Advertising for these programs normally occurs at least a year in advance so that students can plan far in advance to participate. These study abroad experiences are connected to one or more courses, and you will explore a discipline or content area together with your faculty member as you travel and explore your destination country. Any expected upcoming trips will be listed below for you to explore.
