Faculty-Led Study Abroad

Program Overview

Faculty-Led Study Abroad

Please note that due to the COVID-19 outbreak, all Sac State faculty-led study abroad programs have been postponed this year.  Programs will resume in summer 2022.  We are keeping our applications for future programs open if students wish to apply for upcoming courses.


Faculty-Led Study Abroad programs are short-term, international experiences designed for students who would like to study abroad – and stay on track for graduation –  but cannot spend an entire semester or academic year abroad. These programs allow students to infuse international, intercultural, and global dimensions into their academic experience at Sac State. Programs vary in length, and classes are taught by Sac State faculty. 


  • Discipline-specific learning that supplements the Sacramento State curriculum
  • Placement of a discipline in its international context
  • Country/region-specific learning
  • Language acquisition
  • Personal and professional development 


  • Sac State students who would like to earn academic credit towards graduation
  • Community college students, or students from other universities, who would like to earn academic credit from Sacramento State
  • Community members who would like to study abroad
