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.

Comments: The focus of the course is on the challenging / changing of worldviews that began in the 1600-1700’s and continues to present day. There will be an emphasis on views of the “Mind” (i.e., scientific revolution, psychology, learning) and how those ideas challenged Government, Authority and Power [GAP] (i.e., American Revolution, Monarchies, Church). When visiting sites in London and Paris, the Mind and GAP will be highlighted. Additionally, we will experience the rich culture that both London and Paris have to offer.
