MSU Signature Program & Teach Abroad Resources
Where do I start? Whether you are creating an MSU Signature Program on your own or joining an existing Signature, KIIS, CCSA, or any other program, the resources here will assist you with everything from course and program design to student learning to activity and itinerary development. Study Abroad is a field of great scholarship and research in its own right and has developed rapidly over the last decade, creating extensive resources for universities and faculty leaders.
Creating a Signature Program enables you as a faculty member to choose new sites or program lengths outside of existing study abroad options. As a Faculty Director, you will formulate the program as you wish, choosing every site you wish to visit and tour you want to include. Logistical matters such as booking hotels, local transportation, and entrances to sites can be handled by a program provider if you wish. The Study Abroad Office will assist you with finding the appropriate provider for your program if you choose to utilize a provider. See the "Choosing a Program Provider" section below to get started.
Contact the Associate Director for Education Abroad at any time to discuss your program in any stage of planning, whether you're in the brainstorm and idea development phase, developing recruitment materials, or anywhere in between.
