Overview of Programs


Preview Courses

Preview is a full semester course for first-year and new transfer students. The 2-credit course is offered in the Spring semester and integrates a week-long overseas field study during spring break as part of the curriculum. Application is required for enrollment, and a fee of $595 is required in addition to course tuition.

Global Field Study Courses

Global Field Study (GFS) courses are semester-long courses taken on the Glenside campus that include an additional off-campus field study, typically lasting between 1-2 weeks. GFS courses are open to Juniors and Seniors, with some open to graduate students. Courses may be offered in fall, spring, or summer session. Field study travel typically occurs in the middle or at the end of the course. Application is required for enrollment, and a special travel fee (variable by program) is required in addition to course tuition.
