Summer Teaching Abroad
office of international programs
The Office of International Programs operates between 25-30 faculty-led summer programs annually. Faculty leaders hail from all schools and departments at the university. All program proposals are reviewed and approved by the International Programs Committee (IPC) and Office of International Programs and should include detailed information regarding course content and learning outcomes, on-site logistics and support, and cultural excursions in the host country.
Faculty interested in submitting a program proposal are encouraged to consult with Erin Shevlin, the Summer & Internships Program Manager, as well as their academic department. The questions below provide further guidance to faculty regarding questions to consider before submitting a program proposal.
- How does this program expand BC’s existing educational opportunities? What makes it unique?
- What is the connection between the academic content/learning outcomes and the proposed program location? How does the location enhance the program? How does the program promote intercultural learning?
- Does the program align with departmental goals and priorities? Will your department lend full support to the program?
- What is the potential applicant pool and is it sufficiently large to sustain the program for several years? How do you plan on recruiting applicants?
To learn more about summer teaching opportunities contact the Summer & Internships Program Manager, Erin Shevlin.
