At Western, Faculty-Led Study Abroad courses and programs are defined as an education abroad activity involving a group of students under the supervision of a Western faculty member. Students are able to choose from a variety of courses from departments and faculties across campus. Faculty-Led Study Abroad offers students an experiential learning opportunity in a global context. Whether a a field course, a classroom based international experience or a community-engaged-learning experience, these shorter-term summer experiential learning opportunities give students the chance to experience new cultures, gain a global perspective and build leadership skills.
