Study Abroad Program we focus on?
Faculty-led J-term or summer learning
Our Last Frontiers Academic Team focuses on faculty-led learning programs. These can be of varying lengths depending on program needs. Using your learning goals as a guide, we will collaborate with you to create and deliver the ideal itinerary. Should you wish, we are also able to work with you to develop suitable pre-trip and post-trip classroom experiences that will enhance the cultural value of the program.

1. Active and innovative engagement
We believe that traveling to a new place and just seeing a new community and culture, is not enough so we plan our academic exploration trips with active and innovative engagement in mind. We look for various ways that students can engage in different activities to ensure a first-hand active learning experience.
2. Local Experts from Nepal, Bhutan, and India
We work with our extensive and long-standing local contacts to help students gain a deeper insight than they would on a vacation. The culture, tradition, environment and economy of a place is ever changing; because of this our experts are some of the best sources to get the information. We especially appreciate and enjoy the opportunity to work with visiting faculty members who bring their own expertise.
3. Local Sustainability and Collaboration
Planning these trips takes many people who are specialized in their own field and we focus on collaboration with local institutions and organizations to support their goals. We follow the United Nation Sustainable Development Goals and work with local suppliers and providers to support the logistics of the programs we offer.
