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!

Priority application deadline for Fall 2020 Programs: *APRIL 15

Apply for Fall 2020 faculty-led courses (with January 2021 travel) by clicking on the relevant program link below. You'll be notified of your status by Education Abroad. *While April 15 is the priority application deadline, we invite students to apply for Fall 2020 faculty-led programs after April 15 on a space-available basis, through the add/drop period. 

  • *Notice regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19): We understand that students may be hesitant about applying for a Fall 2020 faculty-led course (with travel abroad) due to the global COVID-19 situation. All of the Pace Fall 2020 faculty-led courses feature study abroad in January 2021. 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.


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.

* 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 2020 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, Education Abroad will register you for the course in Banner.
  • 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.
  • 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).
