About Teaching Abroad

All UL Lafayette faculty members (except graduate students) have the opportunity to teach abroad through our UL Lafayette Study Abroad Programs. Faculty members spend anywhere from 10 days to 6 weeks on-site with UL Lafayette students. We currently offer programs in Costa Rica (10 days), England (2 weeks), France or Italy (6 weeks) teaching students in some of the most historical and beautiful locations imaginable. Students can earn 3 to 9 credit hours toward their degrees.

Faculty members who teach in the Study Abroad program are compensated $3,500 plus benefits for teaching two courses. Since faculty teach only one course in Costa Rica, they are compensated $1750. Faculty transportation, lodging, some meals, museum and other admission fees are covered by the program.

Faculty members are encouraged to be creative in their course offerings using the location as a basis for their courses. Faculty members may propose any course they are currently qualified and allowed to teach in their department, but Department Head approval is required for all courses. Possibilities for cross-listings also exist, including Honors and Humanities, with the permission of the directors of those programs.

We encourage you to attend our virtual Faculty Informational Meeting on Thursday, February 24th at 3:30 p.m. to discover the wonderful opportunities for teaching abroad. If this is something you have considered previously or something that you would like to know more about, please join us!
