Study Abroad: For Faculty
Global Teaching and Learning
Study Abroad Course Proposals
The International & Study Abroad Programs Office works with full-time faculty to develop and implement summer courses in London, Granada or Rome or to introduce a short international travel component to a NY-based course in London, Granada, or another location. Study abroad courses must be based at a host institution which provides substantial local support to students and faculty engaged in the program. Host institutions should be able to provide medical and mental health services, 24 hour emergency contact, housing, and manage other emergency and basic logistical issues. The International & Study Abroad Programs Office works with partners around the world and can assist you in identifying a partner for your program if you do not have one already in mind. Study abroad courses should encourage and facliitate student engagement with the local culture and should complement the course being proposed. All proposed sites will be carefully vetted.
The proposal process for courses with an international travel component to be offered in 2024-2025 is a competitive process and will open online in the Fall and will remain open until June 1, 2024. Completed proposals will reviewed by the Study Abroad Faculty Advisory Board in Summer 2024. Please use the links below to submit your proposal:
Collaborative Online International Learning
If you are interested in incorporating a global component to your course, we encourage you to consider Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL). Fordham University partners with universities across the globe and many of those partners would be interested in working with you in collaborative and innovative ways.
- The State University of New York COIL Center provides resources and syllabi examples from courses offered with international partners virtually.
- SUNY COIL has published a faculty guide for COIL course development.
- The Forum on Education Abroad has published a guide to online global learning experiences for educators.
- Fordham's partner DIS (Study Abroad in Scandinavia) has faculty based in Denmark and Sweden interested in collaborating with Fordham faculty in many subject areas including Architecture and Design, Climate Studies, COVID-19, Economics, Politics, Psychology, Neuroscience, Urban Studies, Cultural Studies, and Sustainability.
