The Office of International Programs works with select study abroad providers to allow Loyola students to study abroad at locations where the university can't maintain a Loyola overseas branch campus or exchange.  Providers include non-profit study abroad organizations, study abroad consortia made up of U.S. universities, or Jesuit universities with operations abroad. Academic environments can range from providers’ centers, to direct enrollment in local universities, or both.

Faculty-led programs are Loyola courses that have a component that takes place abroad, during which the entire class travels overseas. The Office of International Programs works with Loyola faculty across the university to co-administer faculty-led programs. These programs are associated with a specific class and vary in length from 2–4 weeks. Three credits are typically awarded for these programs. The classes are taught in English or in one of the foreign languages taught by the Loyola Department of Modern Languages and Literatures. 

When can I go?

For these programs, you may study abroad in the summer, spring break, or January term. 

Where can I find more info? 

Each year, the classes traveling abroad and locations vary, so please refer to the Summer and J-Term/Spring Break locations pages on our website for the most up-to-date faculty-led program offerings.
