Faculty-Led Study Abroad

Faculty-Led Programs

Faculty-led courses offer a credit-bearing study abroad experience that's organized and led by Pace University faculty. More than 25 faculty-led courses are offered annually, to nearly 25 countries!

Application Deadlines for Spring 2020 Programs:
Apply for Spring 2020 faculty-led courses by clicking on the relevant program link below. (You'll be notified of your status by Education Abroad.) While November 15 is the priority application deadline, we invite students to apply for Spring 2020 faculty-led programs after November 15 on a space-available basis, through the add/drop period.

Costs associated with Faculty-Led Programs:
In addition to Pace tuition, students pay (1) a Program Fee for the overseas component, and (2) a $100 Study Abroad Fee. A $500 non-refundable deposit — payable to Pace Education Abroad, via the student's application in Terra Dotta (the study abroad application portal) — is required to secure participation on a faculty-led program and be registered in the course by Education Abroad. The Program Fee and the $100 Study Abroad Fee are billed to the student's OSA account upon course registration. The $500 deposit will appear as a credit towards the Program Fee on the student’s OSA account. Out-of-pocket expenses (airfare, visas, some meals, etc.) are not included in the Program Fee and are the responsibility of the student. See here for scholarships. Student are subject to Pace University's Tuition Cancellation Policy.
