WHICH TYPE OF PROGRAM STRUCTURE WORKS FOR YOU? 

1) FACULTY-LED
You and/or other faculty from your home institution teach the course(s) abroad, while MLSA takes care of all the logistical arrangements.

2) COMBINATION U.S. FACULTY & HOST INSTRUCTORS
Apart from a faculty member from your home institution teaching the course(s) abroad, MLSA arranges for a host-country instructor to teach additional courses, i.e. a class on culture. MLSA takes care of all the logistical arrangements.

3) INTEGRATE YOUR STUDENTS IN AN ALREADY EXISTING MLSA PROGRAM
You might decide that an existing MLSA program meets the needs of your institution, in which case your group can be incorporated into the program seamlessly, and a faculty member from your institution is still welcome to lead the program.
