Academic tours are normally seven-day programs of cultural exploration for both faculty and students who are interested in travelling to non-traditional and unique destinations. Trips, tours and excursions are carefully selected to improve participants’ cultural experience.
It is not designed for academic credit. However, components of academic credit can be added to the program, if a request is received 8 weeks in advance of travel. To maximize immersion in culture of the visited country, explorers are provided with the opportunity to live with a host family.
