Since 2010, SUNY Cortland’s portfolio of study abroad programs more than doubled, from 24 to 55, with more new programs in development. Programs include semester-long study at exchange partner universities, internships, and student teaching. The greatest growth, however, has occurred in the creation of new shorter-term, faculty-led courses abroad. By summer 2018, the College will be offer about 25 of these courses to Cortland and other SUNY students.
These courses are proposed, planned, and offered by SUNY Cortland faculty, in collaboration with the International Programs Office (IPO) and international partners. To ensure these courses meet the same standards for academic rigor and quality as on-campus courses, while also providing students meaningful, safe intercultural experiences, courses proposals are vetted through a special review process outlined below:
Faculty interested in developing new study abroad programs are encouraged to consult with the IPO as early as possible. The proposal, planning, and recruitment process for successful, quality, well-subscribed programs generally takes from 12 to 18 months. The deadline is January 15 for summer and fall Programs, and September 15 for winter and spring programs at least one year prior to the desired program launch year.
