Program Type

There are different types of programs, each of which fits students in different ways.

Faculty-led

Led by an on-site resident Guilford faculty member and tailored to groups of Guilford College students who take classes together. These programs are good for students who would like more guidance from a professor while abroad and the company of fellow Guilford students. We have this type of programming in China (Kunming/Xianggelila/Geza), Germany (Munich), and Italy (Brunnenburg and Siena).

Faculty-coordinated
 
Coordinated by a non-resident Guilford faculty member who assists students in programs that integrate Guilford students with other international and local students. These programs are good for students who would like to study in the company of other Guilford students, but do not need on the onsite presence of a Guilford faculty member. We offer this kind of programming in Ghana (Cape Coast), Cuba (Havana) , and Mexico (Tlaxcala).

Guilford Affiliated Programs
 
Independent programs offered by distinguished professional partners in which you would likely find other American students, but few or no Guilford students, and no Guilford faculty presence. These programs are ideal for more independent students who think first about the subject they’d like to study, rather than the location. Certainly, the location is an important part of the experience, but it is organized around the academic component.
