These are Texas A&M University sponsored programs led by Texas A&M University faculty and designed around specific courses. The faculty-led program model allows students to go abroad with a group of fellow Aggies, with whom they can share the hands-on experience of doing activities they cannot do in a classroom in College Station. While faculty-led programs are primarily offered during the summer 1 or 2 term, there are others that take place during the fall and spring semesters or that go abroad during the winter, spring, May or August break periods.
- Students go abroad with other Aggies under the supervision of a Texas A&M University faculty member
- On-site logistics such as accommodations, in-country transportation, and excursions are arranged for the students
- Instruction is in English, except for language programs, giving students the opportunity to study abroad in a country they might not otherwise be able to
- The courses taught are Texas A&M courses, which means there’s no process of transferring courses back
- Many programs are designed for rigid degree programs, providing education abroad options to students of nearly every major
