Individually lead

Individual study abroad programs allow you to take advantage of study, research, teaching, internship and volunteering opportunities around the world. Studying abroad individually requires planning, greater independence and a sense of adventure, which are very rewarding.

These programs not are affiliated with A&M-Commerce and are typically administrated by another university, institution or organization. Course credit and financial aid may only be available on select programs.

Additional opportunities with special funding are available through our affiliated agreements.


Faculty-led study abroad programs are offered to matriculating students and are usually offered as either stand-alone opportunities (a separate course) or as a course capstone. The advantages of faculty-led programs are as follows:

  • Typically lower trip costs
  • Of shorter duration, 7-14 days
  • Travel as a group
  • Directly associated with student’s classroom work

Destinations for faculty-led programs are at the sole discretion of the faculty director. Faculty determines course content, duration and destination.
