Faculty-Led Programs

TLU Faculty-Led Programs

A variety of periodic study abroad programs are offered through TLU. These are typically ten day to two-week programs led by a professor with travel in May or June, while courses are taken during the spring semester. Past programs have included: Kinesiology and Education to Italy, Biology and Social Entrepreneurship to Costa Rica, and Geography and French to Canada. 

Tuition and program fees are applied to the spring TLU invoice and financial aid can be applied towards the program. Fees, which usually range from $3,000 to $4,500 typically include airfare, lodging, ground transport, and group admissions on planned programs. Some or all of the meals are generally covered, depending on the program. Students must pre-register for the respective class and affiliated lab travel portion and must have a minimum GPA of 2.25 and a good campus discipline record to participate. Application and a $300 non-refundable deposit are due at the time of pre-registration, usually in mid-November. Locations and course subjects vary year to year.

Detailed information about upcoming faculty-led programs, including program applications, deadlines, and additional requirements, is available on MyTLU.
