Faculty-Led Programs

Faculty Led Study Travel Programs 2022

Faculty-Led Programs are Salem State courses where you travel with classmates and are guided by your faculty. These are great for first year students, students who cannot be away for a long period of time, students with tight academic schedules, and for those who would like to travel with others! 

The travel part of the journey is usually 6-12 days. Most of the programs are open to ANY major and are great ways to fulfill general education or degree requirements.

Application Process
The application is fairly simple - visit the program page and click "Apply Now." If you are a Salem State student, you can log into the application using your SSU username and password. All participants must be in good academic (2.0 gpa) and judicial standing. The application consists of:
  • Questionnaire as to why you want to go on the program
  • Disciplinary report confirming whether or not you have gotten in trouble on campus or with the law
  • Copy of your unofficial transcript (which you can upload from your Navigator Account)
  • Copy of your passport (if a passport is required)
    • Note: You do not need a passport to apply to the program, but most programs require a passport in order to travel
