10.3.8. Short-Term Programs Abroad

The global education office, in conjunction with Oglethorpe University faculty, creates, organizes, and directs short-term, for-credit academic study programs abroad often during January and summer terms. Oglethorpe professors develop these programs as intensive explorations of culture, music, history, politics, art, archaeology, and business. Destinations have included locations in Asia, Central and Latin America, Europe, and North Africa. Students are required to take any short-term program for credit, and cannot participate in any short-term program without also enrolling in the required course. Student participation in these programs and in the associated course usually includes note-taking, photography, field documentation, journaling, written and/or oral presentations, and a research project to be completed after returning from the program as independent work with the professor. A current list of short-term programs can be found on the global education website.
