Embedded Study Abroad Programs

Global Education and Study Abroad staff encourage faculty to add a global component to academic courses through the submission of proposals for an Embedded Study Abroad program.

Embedded Study Abroad Programs are:

  • undergraduate or graduate course taken at UC San Diego that include a credit-bearing, global field or travel component;
  • taught and led by UC San Diego ladder ranked faculty (or LSOE);
  • seven to ten day global experiences during spring break or the first week of summer break that compliment content covered in the course taught during the previous quarter;
  • an additional cost to the course, and require student enrollment in a specific section of the course;
  • Not mandatory for all students enrolled in the course.

Embedded Study Abroad Programs are a useful vehicle to allow students to accrue credits towards a department’s Global Concentration.

Proposal development information coming soon!
