Faculty-Led Courses

Each year, the Global Studies Program administers a number of faculty-led study abroad courses. These courses generally begin with instruction on campus at UAH and conclude with a study abroad component of two to four weeks in length. This year, faculty-led courses will be offered in Germany ("Legacies of the Third Reich"), Spain (Intensive Spanish), Russia and Ukraine (Russian Culture), and the United Kingdom (Global Health).
