Short-Term Course Proposal

Lead a Short-Term Study Away Program

Short-term, faculty-led study away programs are intensive academic experiences initiated, organized and carried out by members of the PLU faculty, with assistance from the Wang Center for Global Education. Short-term programs are taught both overseas and domestically depending on the course subject matter and will often combine some class time on campus with off-campus study depending on the course design.

Short-term study away programs must satisfy a General Education, FYEP or IHON requirement, or provide departmental or program credit towards a major or a minor. In terms of student demand, most PLU students study away on short-term courses offered during J-Term.

While summer session courses have been offered in the past, enrolling these has been challenging due to limits on financial aid and our students’ need to work. Offering a short-term study away course requires submission of a proposal and a positive recommendation by the Global Education Committee prior to the Provost’s final approval.
