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.
BOSP is now accepting proposals from Stanford faculty for the Summer Quarter 2013-2014 Overseas Seminars. Overseas Seminars are two-unit classes taught by Stanford faculty in locations around the world that have direct relevance to the course topic. Seminars take place over a period of three weeks during summer. Course content should be academically rigorous and unique, but at the same time general enough to be accessible to a wide range of undergraduates. The capacity of each seminar is 15 students.
