Prof. Herbst has led 14 international programs, as follows:
Ten Global Seminars (5-week long programs abroad): Australia (2019), Italy (2018), New Zealand (2017), Thailand/Cambodia (2014), England (2013), Turkey (2009 – 2012), and France (2008).
Two Summer Teacher Institutes Aboard (3-weeks): These programs (2013, 2015) were designed for secondary education teachers and took place in Istanbul, Turkey. More than 300 teachers applied for the 25 spaces available in each Summer Institute, both of which were funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Two Intercultural Learning and Service programs (1-week): These programs combined a winter term preparatory course with a spring break experience in Istanbul, Turkey (2013, 2014).
