Faculty-led Programs​

  • Faculty-led, study abroad international trips for academic credit

Affiliated Partnership Programs

  • Exchange programs: A relationship with a partner college or university that offers reciprocal exchange opportunities for participants or faculty to work or study at their respective institutions
  • Internships and work-away defined as educational experiences that are primarily based in work or field placements. Supervision is primarily conducted by a work or field supervisor, rather than Dallas College faculty, although credit-bearing experiences may have a faculty member of record and additional assessment activities depending upon the scope and nature of the project.
  • Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL): Virtual learning exchange with students at an international university
