Academic Courses

Academic credit is an integral component of this program it is based on the philosophy that ‘real world’ educational opportunities are often a far more effective way of learning than following a conventional classroom routine.

During each program, participants are introduced to a wealth of information regarding the cultures, history and environments of the countries visited. Numerous geographical excursions, incidental learning experiences, and in-house study sessions contribute to the education structure of the program.

Credit earned during the program consists of carefully designed interdisciplinary subject base, carrying up to 18 upper division university semester credit hours, or the equivalent in quarter hour credits. We host a number of participating universities who share our passion for international travel study.
