Faculty-Led Study Abroad Programs

Faculty-led study abroad (FLSA) programs are academic experiences and programs that are initiated, organized, and carried out out by UNC faculty members with assistance from the Study Abroad and Exchange Office.

Course length may range from a week long (such as Spring Break excursions) to six weeks. FLSA experiential learning programs typically focus on a particular topic, language, or interdisciplinary understanding of an issue. They feature field studies, local excursions, and cultural activities used to enhance learning. FLSA courses:

  • Count for direct UNC credit 
  • Work for both traditional and non-traditional students 
  • An affordable option compared to a traditional semester abroad
  • Involve classroom meetings and coursework before or after travel

*Programs can be cancelled due to low enrollment or other unexpected circumstances.
