Faculty-Led Programs for Fairfield & Non Fairfield

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, Florence, Italy for 12 days in January? Over the summer our Galway location hosts our “Drugs and Behavior” faculty led as well as our “Communication and Health Studies” comparative Palliative Care faculty led.  Keep visiting this site as there could be an addition or two to our offerings as we work through the summer semester. 

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.

Transform Your Life by Learning Abroad.  Faculty Led programs are available
  • To all sophomores, juniors and seniors
  • Who are in good academic and social standing at their home institution
  • With a grade point average of a least a 2.8 on a 4.0 scale
  • Permission of instructor(s) is required
  • Students must be 18 years of age or older at time of departure 
  • Students must possess passport valid for at least six (6) months after return date
  • Students must complete all pre-departure orientations
  • Full payment prior to departure is required. Deadlines are provided.
  • 2020-21 Academic Year Update: Fairfield University has suspended our Faculty Led programming at this time.  As you know, our principle concern is to ensure the safety and well-being of our students and faculty.  Faculty led programs, by their nature, place substantial responsibility on the shoulders of the Faculty member leading the program and it is unfair to expect faculty to assume the additional risk that a COVID19 eruption would present. Please stay tuned for updates later this Fall.
