European Study Tour
May 12 to May 31, 2013
In late May and early June, two Ouachita faculty members lead a three-week study tour to western Europe. The trip focuses on sites of significant historical, cultural and intellectual importance in the development of Western traditions.
The group will have a wide range of experiences including tours of museums and galleries, visits to palaces, churches and ancient ruins, as well as possible attendance at dramatic and musical performances.
Students selected must participate in a preparation course, requiring one hour per week for meeting, and outside preparatory assignments to be determined by the leading faculty.
Upon completion of the trip and required assignments, a student may receive six hours of academic credit. Three hours will be Humanities credit and three will be junior/senior elective credit.
Costs may change, but until such time as we know the precise amount, please be advised the increase is estimated not to rise more than 5% overall.
Course Credit: Upon completion of the tour and its assignments, students receive six hours of junior senior credit CORE 3063 (fulfills 1 Fine Arts requirement) and INTL 3833 (counts as an elective).
