Faculty-Led Study Abroad Programs

Faculty-led study abroad programs offer the best of both worlds: on-campus classes at UNF plus an immersive experience abroad with your classmates and professor. Consider a faculty-led program to explore a particular business discipline from a different perspective while earning three credits.  These are great opportunities for students going abroad for the first time and/or students with obligations at home that make spending a summer or semester abroad more challenging.
