Study Away - Faculty-Led Trips
Schreiner Courses with Travel Attached
The courses with travel attached are announced before registration for the semester and highlighted in the registration schedule. Some of these trips are attached to interdisciplinary courses that are listed on every degree plan. The tuition for the course is covered by your financial aid package, but there is an additional trip cost to participate in the travel experience. The Study Abroad Office works to keep these costs as reasonable as possible and still provide a great experience.
The deans of the colleges have initiated scholarships for students in their college to help defray the trip costs for these courses. Please see the Study Abroad director to find out how to apply.
Some of the courses offered with travel attached:
- IDST 3360 – Aesthetics
- IDST 4240 – Global Issues
- IDST 2270 – Topics
Some courses in the disciplines such as the art courses offered during the Florence Summer Semester.
