Faculty Led Programs

Faculty Led programs are usually designed by a VT faculty member and sponsored by a specific VT department. There are two basic types of programs, semester-long and short term. The semester-long programs are typically held at one of our satellite campuses, such as the Center for European Studies & Architecture (CESA) in Switzerland and the Caribbean Center for Education & Research (CCER) in the Dominican Republic. Our short term programs typically take place in either the summer or winter.

Here is a list of Faculty Led programs currently offered.

Program Requirements

Faculty Led programs require students to have a minimum 2.5 GPA, although some programs may require a higher GPA.
Most Faculty Led programs are taught in English. Speak with program leaders to learn more about programs that interest you.

Costs and Housing

Program fees are determined by the faculty member and usually include housing and trip fees. Some programs include airfare.
