Currently there are two options for faculty to teach abroad through the College of Arts and Sciences.
Faculty can propose to teach a travel course during May Term. This process begins during the academic year prior to the planned May Term because of curricular development timelines and the needs to establish and review relationships with partners overseas.
Applications for May Term travel courses can be found here. Applications are due March 31st the year prior to the May Term travel course. May Term travel courses must also be submitted to and approved by the Curriculum Committee. Course requests must be submitted in Curriculog, where it will be routed for committee review. The Curriculog link and procedure guides are housed in MyRedlands under CAPS & Curriculum Forms.
Please note the application process and timeline to teach a May Term travel course in Salzburg is a different. The application to teach a May Term travel course in Salzburg can be found here; applications for May Term 2024 are due November 1, 2021.
When faculty members offer May Term courses, they need to bear in mind our recommendations for risk management (including STEP registration, emergency protocols, student mental health, and the like) as well as how they can best support student learning overseas, especially given cultural differences. We offer annual trainings for May Term travel course faculty leaders on these important elements.
