Field Trips & Student Groups
Field Trips & Student Groups abroad are Texas A&M sponsored programs that can be credit-bearing (offered in conjunction with a Texas A&M course) or non-credit bearing (such as volunteer or service learning). These opportunities are coordinated by a Texas A&M faculty member, staff member, or a student organization.
Note: Field Trips & Student Groups are different from faculty-led programs, as the trip can be part of a credit-bearing course or a non-credit bearing program of its own. If a trip is a required part of a credit-bearing course, more than half of the course (50%) is taught on campus.
- Duration abroad is usually 1-2 weeks.
- The brief exposure abroad has equipped students with confidence to pursue longer immersion programs during their academic career at Texas A&M.
- Students engage in projects related to an academic outcome and/or pursue an activity related to the group’s mission or purpose.
- Students are able to utilize financial aid to offset program-related expenses for credit-bearing experiences.
Requirements are determined by the program leader(s) coordinating the trip.
Once the participant list is confirmed for a trip, eligible students are provided instructions by their program leader(s) on how to complete the registration process with Education Abroad. Students must complete the registration process prior to departure. Trip leaders can start the Field Trip
