Honors Program International Studies

During alternate years, the Honors Program sponsors special foreign study colloquia which allow students the opportunity to augment their investigation of a major international city with travel to that city over spring break.  Led by faculty with expertise in that particular region, these courses allow students the opportunity to explore the world around them and provide a forum for meaningful discussion of history and culture. These experiences will provide invaluable insights that will re-shape the way you think about the world. Recent Honors trips have explored Vienna, Rome, Berlin and Peru.
