Program Locations

Prospective BOSP Faculty


Each quarter, one Stanford professor serves as Faculty-in-Residence in each of the BOSP program locations. These faculty teach classes in their own disciplines, often developing courses that incorporate unique features of the local culture and environment or that provide comparative perspectives on a particular topic.

Stanford faculty members find that teaching at one of our overseas programs is a rewarding and memorable experience. Returning faculty emphasize:

  • the pleasure of having small classes
  • the opportunity to get to know students on a personal basis
  • the chance to participate in field trips
  • the supportive program staff
  • the connections made with colleagues, libraries, and research projects in the host country

BOSP Faculty-in-Residence serve as mentors and role models for students in their exploration of a new environment. As a Stanford faculty member teaching with one of our programs, you can participate in what many students regard as the highlight of their Stanford years.

BOSP Faculty-in-Residence are recruited among Stanford faculty from all schools and departments. An appointment typically lasts one quarter, and faculty offer one class plus directed readings during a term abroad.
