Fairfield Faculty-Led Programs


Faculty Led Programs are an opportunity to bring the classroom to you beyond the campus borders! What's better for learning about Italian Art than going to where it all began, in Florence? Or, utilizing your clinical skills to assist families in Nicaragua? Faculty Led opportunities increase students' cultural understanding and support the Jesuit mission "to promote a sense of social responsibility, and making sure all students embrace and develop their full creative, intellectual potential."

Faculty Led Programs can enhance your curriculum, fit into your busy schedule, work for your budget, and meet your academic needs. Program costs include tuition, housing, academic excursions, some meals and on-site transportation.
