Program Description:
Undergraduate short-term, faculty-led study away programs are intensive academic experiences initiated, organized and carried out by members of the PLU faculty, with assistance from the Wang Center for Global Education. Undergraduate short-term programs are taught both overseas and domestically depending on the course subject matter and will often combine some class time on campus with off-campus study depending on the course design. Undergraduate short-term study away programs must satisfy a General Education, FYEP or IHON requirement, or provide departmental or program credit towards a major or a minor. In terms of student demand, most PLU students study away on undergraduate short-term courses offered during J-Term.

While summer session courses have been offered in the past, enrolling these has been challenging due to limits on financial aid and our students’ need to work. Offering an undergraduate short-term study away course requires submission of a proposal and a positive recommendation by the Global Education Committee prior to the Provost’s final approval.

Early and timely course proposal submissions are greatly appreciated to ensure a smooth review process. NOTE: Session will time out at 60 minutes. If information is not saved within 60 minutes, the content will be lost and must be re-done. Application questions can be accessed here, Undergraduate Short-Term Study Away Course Proposal, for drafting purposes.
