Short-Term Faculty-Led

Please note that placement into "open" short-term programs is done through random lottery- it is NOT first come-first served!

Students have the ability to choose from several short term programs at Queens.

Short-term faculty-led programs are designed with a specific academic focus. Students will receive academic credit that could potentially be applied towards their major, minor, or other degree requirements. Students will need to talk to their advisor about their chosen program to verify that the course will satisfy their desired requirement. 

During these programs, students travel in a group of students and faculty, generally for 10-21 days (depending on the program) after taking a prep course the semester prior. All programs are worth 4 total credits, but could be split in a variety of ways - either 3 credits for the on-campus portion and 1 for the in-country portion, 2 for campus and 2 for in-country, or even 1 and 3, respectively. Both the on-campus portion and the in-country portion are taken for a letter grade. Students must earn a C- or better in the prep course in order to travel.


Students on faculty-led programs can request to extend their time abroad by changing their return ticket to a later date. Please note that not all requests may be possible due to airline restrictions, airfare terms, or space availability. In order to request a change in the return flight, students must complete a form and return an original or electronic copy to the PCIE office by the specified deadline. Late requests will not be considered. Students who request a change must read and agree to a set of terms, found on the form on our MyQueens page. Students are responsible for any difference in fare and change fees.


The Class of '58 Scholarship was established to honor The Class of 1958's 50th Reunion and in support of John Belk's generosity to Queens' International Program. The scholarship is intended to support the international experience of students who demonstrate academic merit and interest in international issues. Typically, two $500 scholarships are awarded annually to students participating in faculty-led programs and Summer Business Programs.
