Faculty-Led Programs

An ideal option for students who want to share in this unique learning experience with other fellow students in a group that is outside of the traditional classroom environment. Faculty-led programs are credit-bearing academic courses that are approved by the university and taught/led by a Texas A&M University-Kingsville faculty member. They are short-term and are typically held in either the intersession or summer semester.
