Spring Break, Summer Study Tours Offer Unique Learning Opportunities

Each year, the professors in the College of Liberal Arts offer students a rare chance to learn about cultures and history firsthand through study tours. A study tour is a credit-bearing course in which the majority of the academic work is accomplished through group study and travel outside the UCO campus. It provides a group of students with an applied, supervised experience at an off-campus location, whether foreign or domestic, for a minimum of two or more overnights, and enhances the student's classroom knowledge of an academic discipline(s) through first-hand exposure. Once on site, travel during the study tour is an integral part of the learning process.

Study Tours being offered in 2016 included:

  • The British Isles (Led by Timothy Petete)
  • The Cultures of Andalucia, Spain (Led by Diana Pardo and Guillermo Martinez-Sotelo)
  • Germany, the Center of Europe (Led by Rudi Nollert, Michael Springer, and Mary Brodnax)
  • London/Dublin (Led by Jessica Sheetz-Nguyen and Stan Adamiak) or explore the Military History option of the London/Dublin Study Tour
  • Archival Research in London (Led by Jessica Sheetz-Nguyen)
  • Southern France and Spain: Paths and Borders (Led by Catherine Webster and Maria Teresa Moinette)
  • Nicaragua (Led by Diana Pardo)
  • Layers of Rome (Led by Margaret Musgrove and Sarah Kyle)
  • For Spring Break: Museum Tour of Washington DC (Led by Mark Janzen)
