Information for Faculty

Advising Students
Faculty can be wonderful advocates for studying abroad.  Sharing your experiences and enthusiasm can make the difference in whether a student follows through with their plans to study abroad or not. Some quick tips to help with advising students:
  • The earlier the better! Students will be better able to plan academically and financially for study abroad programs when they begin planning as freshmen. Encourage students to be in touch with Experiential Learning Director Kim Justeson as soon as possible.
  • Students in ALL Majors can study abroad. Certain majors have a bit more difficulty studying abroad for a full semester, but with summer and short term programs their needs can be met as well.
  • Students must seek approval for each course they hope to take, as well as several alternates, from the appropriate Albright department chair. Students are told to provide a full course description from the institution or provider to allow the department chair to make an informed decision. The department chair has the final say as to whether the course credit abroad will be accepted at Albright College upon completion of the course with a C- or above. Only course credit transfers, not the grade.  
Short Term Faculty-Led Programs Abroad 
Participating in an education abroad opportunity can be the highlight of a student’s undergraduate experience. Faculty-led study abroad programs are one important way to promote experiential learning through international education on a short term basis, making it within the reach of many students who would not otherwise be able to study abroad. The Handbook for Faculty-Led Programs Abroad will guide you as you consider planning and implementing a short term study abroad course. Additional resources for planning courses abroad include: The Forum on Education Abroad's Standards of Good Practice and NAFSA: The Association of International Educators' website.

You don't need to create a study abroad course alone though. Albright works with partner programs and can connect you with organizations who will handle travel logistics while you focus on the academics. The proposal forms below will guide you in your planning of a course. Please don't hesitate to reach out to Kim Justeson for guidance in completing the forms.
