Short-Term Faculty-Led Programs

Programs are typically 2-3 weeks in length, taught with the full support of a local partner abroad; Faculty are paid according to their contracted rate at PSU. Over 50% of study abroad students at PSU choose these types of programs due to their affordable nature and short timeframe.

Virtual Education Abroad

Create or enhance a course with dynamic and engaging virtual content from abroad!

These courses cost the same as PSU tuition & fees and do not require travel, so they are an ideal way to offer cross-cultural learning for students who cannot go abroad for financial, personal, or other reasons.

Faculty Voices from Abroad

Professor George Rede led a group of PSU students to England in 2018 & 2019. Having never been to London before, it was as much fun for him to explore the city as it was for his students. His Communication course, Media Literacy in London was facilitated by our partner CAPA Study Abroad, who helped to manage all the logistics and to set up activities like a tour of the Houses of Parliament, a visit to the Museum of Brands, and a visit to the BBC.

His Media Literacy program was such a success he is hoping to lead a new group of students to Berlin in 2021, this time with a focus on Sports, Culture, and the Media.
