Maximizes the learning that is possible in a variety of fields of study through travel to various destinations, in order to gain first-hand experience. Travel serves to enhance a student's greater understanding of a wide range of disciplines in the arts, humanities, and professional fields. Although, site visits are not the exclusive learning experience and must be supplemented by more conventional learning methods such as lectures and reading, this course relies predominately on contact with the country visited. The travel study course is two to three weeks in length. This course is a globally intensive course that promotes intercultural competency and global awareness. Successful completion of this course contributes toward the 15 credits of globally intensive curriculum needed to earn the certificate of Global Distinction.
