Faculty-led programs are a tradition at Bridgewater State University and one that the Office of Study Abroad enthusiastically supports. Over time, several academic departments on campus have offered faculty-led programs, and in a given year, as many as 1/2 of all study abroad participants are enrolled in faculty-led programs. These programs provide a variety of benefits for students including: an overseas program directly linked to their coursework at BSU, the security of traveling with someone who they know and respect, and a shorter program that opens up this opportunity to many students who otherwise would not go abroad.
Many students who participate in faculty-led programs have never left the U.S. and probably wouldn't during their time at BSU if not for these programs. We often find that students who first experience international travel with a BSU faculty member return to our office to pursue other opportunities.
