Faculty Led Programs
Faculty led programs are trips with Snow College faculty members to other countries.
Usually there are educational components to the trip, and sometimes there is Snow
College credit offered for the class. For example, Snow College has had trips to Taiwan
to teach English as a Second Language. The students received TESL credits for pre-trip
activities, a project to complete during the trip, and a reflective project upon completion
of the trip. Another example of a faculty led trip was to Colombia for a Global Inquiry
and Service Learning class.
The following resources are to help Snow College Faculty and students with considerations
for a class trip abroad.
