Travel and Field Experience

Students are encouraged to meet Global Education requirements through study abroad programs or other international experiences. Study abroad or travel classes with a “G” designation may be used to meet the “G” graduation requirement, and some sections of GL 320 include field experiences. Opportunities range from short spring break trips to semester-long residential courses

Students who are interested in travel opportunities should speak with Study Abroad Advisor:

Short-term Travel & Courses

These courses are offered during regular fall & spring terms as TR 130 or TR 330. Students enroll in the courses during regular semester registration and participate in the trip as scheduled during either winter break, spring break or at the end of the term (travel dates vary by trip, course and destination).

For most trips, the enrollment for travel is managed by EF tours allowing students to register early and select their preferred method of payment and payment plan.

Real Hands-On Experience


“My time in Colombia gave me insight into a vivid, thriving culture that I still hold dear to my heart. I became a Colombian while I was down there and continue to feel a deep sense of admiration for that magical place.” – Carly P.
