Teach Abroad With USAC

The University of Cincinnati is a member of University Studies Abroad Consortium (USAC), which is a non-profit consortium that provides quality, affordable study abroad programs.

With UC’s membership as an affiliate university, there are a number of opportunities available to UC faculty and staff, including the visiting professor program. Professors from the University of Cincinnati have the unique opportunity to support the USAC mission and internationalize their home universities by teaching abroad.

Visiting professors establish contacts with foreign colleagues, enhance their own foreign language acquisition, strengthen and support international education and study abroad on campus, diversify course curriculum, and develop international relationships for research and other purposes.

A key difference to prior years, USAC is soliciting applications from faculty to teach specific, pre-determined courses, vs. proposing their own. 

USAC is seeking faculty for the following Summer 2023 opportunities.

  • Pau, France – Summer Session 1 (June)– Sustainability in France/Europe (likely ENV/GEOG/PSC, likely 300/400 level, 3 credits)
  • Viterbo, Italy – Summer Session 1 (June)– Food and Culture (ANTH/NUTR, 400-level, 3 credits)
  • Prague, Czech Republic – Summer Session 2 (July)– Sustainable Development (ENV/GEOG/PSC, 300-level, 3 credits)
  • Santiago, Chile – Summer Session 2 (July)– Race, Gender, and Media (JOUR/GRI, 400 level, 3 credits)
  • Verona, Italy – Summer Session 2 (July) – International Tourism Management (TCA/TOUR, 400-level, 3 credits)
