Faculty Led Programs

Faculty Led programs are usually designed by a VT faculty member and sponsored by a specific VT department. Some semester-long programs are held at Virginia Tech's satellite campus, the Steger Center for International Scholarship in Switzerland. Short-term programs typically take place in either the summer or winter at various locations.

Here is a list of Faculty Led programs currently offered.

Program Requirements

Faculty-led programs require students to have a minimum 2.5 GPA, although some programs may require a higher GPA. Any exception is at the discretion of the faculty program leader.

Costs and Housing

Program fees are determined by the faculty member and usually include housing and trip fees. Some programs include airfare.
