Study Abroad programs also provide an opportunity for SF State faculty to expand their field of knowledge, gain international teaching experience, and reconnect/establish ties with overseas colleagues while helping to build a more international curriculum by leading a cohort of students overseas and teaching an SF State course relevant to the country of stay.
