Pursue your degree while visiting and learning about a new part of the world through Travelearn, Kean's short-term study abroad program. Travelearn offers you the opportunity to combine your academic studies with short-term travel to various destinations, which typically aren't offered through the regular study abroad program. The programs typically consist of lectures and excursions related to a particular topic. Students of all majors are encouraged to apply. Travelearn programs are led by faculty who are experts in the respective program's field of study.
Spring 2021 study abroad programs are suspended. The Center for International Studies will continue to monitor the situation following guidance from the Department of State, CDC and New Jersey Department of Health. We will reevaluate the situation in mid-March and publish a new assessment then.

Matriculating Kean students who wish to register for Kean credit must contact the faculty coordinator to register for the corresponding course in KeanWISE. External participants must register for academic credit as visiting student. You must obtain visas and any other required travel documentation required by the destination country.
Information for Faculty
If you are thinking about running a Travelearn, contact International Education to talk about options regarding providers, countries, and ideas for timelines. All programs must receive final approval by VPAA. Once packets are completed, they must be returned to the International Education office which will help route the packet through the rest of the approval process. Programs should be prepared to present at least three proposals from different study abroad vendors.
Once a TL proposal has received final approval, faculty coordinators and additional faculty members must fill out the required travel paperwork per the requirements of the Faculty Travel Manual. Center for International Studies and the VPAA Office retains the right to cancel a program if there are not enough students registered. Programs may also be canceled if it is deemed not safe to travel to particular countries.
Additional Faculty Responsibilities
- All faculty members traveling on a TL will have a pre-departure meeting with Center for International Studies prior to leaving
- Faculty and or their department will arrange to pick up a cell phone through OCIS for their international travel
- The number for the cellphone will be left with Center for International Studies for emergency purposes
