Getting Started Teaching Abroad

We appreciate your interest in developing a faculty-led study abroad program.


  • Getting Started

    Teaching a short-term course abroad or off campus is an excellent way to take an academic subject outside of a traditional classroom setting and connect it to the realities and experiences of the world. The vast majority of St. Catherine University students studying abroad do so on short-term courses led by St. Kate’s faculty.

    All faculty must have course proposals approved by their department chair and by the Global Studies Advisory Committee. GSJ courses must also be approved by the CORE Committee.

    Proposals deadlines run roughly a year and a half in advance, so expect to start planning 18-24 months before the intended start date of the course.

    Although much work goes into developing and delivering a successful Global Studies course, we are pleased to collaborate and support you along the way. Contact the director of Global Studies to discuss your ideas for course development and the resources available to bring your course to life.
