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. Nearly 20 faculty-led courses are offered annually! However, Pace's Faculty-Led study abroad courses are cancelled for the 2020-2021 Academic Year due to COVID-19.


Dr. Sonia Suchday is offering a January online 3-credit Psychology Elective course – UG PSY296N – Psychology of Health, Well-Being, and Happiness: Biopsychosocial, Cultural, & Spiritual Perspectives. Though this year the travel portion to India was cancelled due to COVID-19, Dr. Suchday is offering a virtual version. Register through your MyPace Portal and contact Dr. Suchday with any questions about the course.

Spring 2021 Programs are cancelled (due to COVID-19)

Covid-19 Considerations

We understand that students may be hesitant about applying for a faculty-led courses (with travel abroad) due to the global COVID-19 situation. Fall 2021 Faculty-Led courses feature study abroad in January 2022. We recommend that you complete your application for the Faculty-Led course you are interested in, and also select a backup Pace course on campus; this would protect you in case the evolving COVID-19 situation affects international travel (which could involve a course cancellation over the summer). If a faculty-led course is cancelled by Pace due to an ongoing COVID-19 threat, the $500 deposit will be returned to students.

Steps to Study Abroad on a Faculty-Led Program

We recommend that students complete their application for their selected Fall 2021 faculty-led course and also select a back-up Pace course on campus (to protect students in case COVID-19 continues to affect international travel).

  • Attend a 30-minute "Study Abroad 101" info session through Pace Education Abroad (to learn about the process).
  • Research the many faculty-led study abroad programs listed below.
  • Meet with your Academic Advisor (to review your academic track, class flexibility, and plans to study abroad in relation to your graduation & major/minor requirements). Contact the course's Faculty Leader directly for academic-related questions.
  • Apply for your chosen faculty-led program (by clicking on the program link below, and then clicking on the blue "Apply Now" button). Wait to be notified by Education Abroad about acceptance.
  • If you've been accepted into the program, make a non-refundable $500 deposit* to secure your spot on the program, via the study abroad application portal (Terra Dotta). *If a faculty-led course is cancelled by Pace due to an ongoing COVID-19 threat, the $500 deposit will be returned to students.
  • Once the deposit is received, Education Abroad will register you for the course in Banner.
  • Follow the instructions sent to you by Education Abroad about next steps.
  • Attend all pre-departure classes at Pace, including the orientation organized by Education Abroad, and apply for visas (if applicable).
  • Note: do not purchase airfare or make travel plans connected with your faculty-led program, until advised to do so by Pace Education Abroad.

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.
