Faculty-Led Study Abroad Programs (FLP)

Faculty-Led Programs (FLPs) are three to eight week long SJSU courses taught overseas during the summer or winter sessions. FLPs are intended not only to provide a more affordable and short-term study abroad opportunity for SJSU students, but also to provide an opportunity for SJSU faculty to expand their field knowledge, gain international teaching experience, and establish or reconnect with overseas colleagues and contacts while helping to build a more international SJSU curriculum.

FLPs are run by International Programs and Services (IPS), a department of the SJSU College of International and Extended Studies (CIES). The FLP Coordinator works with IPS, CIES, and SJSU faculty to plan, budget, and market safe and successful short-term study abroad programs.
