International travel can change your life. That's the premise behind the College of Arts and Sciences' Global Field Studies Program in General Education, Arts and Sciences.
In 2015 and in coordination with WorldStrides International Discovery, the college will offer ongoing opportunities for students, faculty and staff to explore the world together. The program incorporates a week or more of international travel into for-credit courses that satisfy general-education or academic program requirements.
Several Global Field Studies in General Education, Arts and Sciences international travel experiences have been organized for UB by WorldStrides International Discovery, well known as an educational travel agency and staffed by former educators, that tailors every trip to the interests and academic needs of student travelers.
London: Disraeli, Dickens and Darwin (March 14-22, 2015), in conjunction with three spring semester courses, including Evolutionary Psychology taught by John Bates, a Victorian literature course taught by Cheryl Wilson and a general education course (yet to be determined).
Northern Ireland: The Armagh Project (July 3-August 2, 2015), a month-long playwriting residency led by Kimberley Lynne. Students who participate in this program can receive academic credit. Click here to learn more about The Armagh Project.
Belize: A Bridge to Belize (summer 2015), in conjunction with PHIL 497 Sustainability and Cultural Diversity taught by Darien Ripple.
Planning for a fourth travel experience, to Germany during summer 2015, is nearing completion. As soon as the itinerary has been established, we will communicate details.
