Administered through the Department of Experiential Learning, the Study Away Program provides administrative support to both students and faculty in the creation of short-term, credit-bearing and travel-based experiences. Faculty work with our Study Away Faculty Scholar, Hillery Haney, to create meaningful experiences that meet course, department/program and institutional learning outcomes while helping students persist, transfer, or earn a degree.
These experience are designed to prepare students of how to travel, acquire a functional knowledge of cultural practices and ability to draw connections from the travel experience to course concepts.
Study Away experiences may be local, regional, national, or international. Examples include:
- A 10-day experience traveling through France, Germany, Morocco or Italy as part of HU 219 Global Studies through International Travel course. Students are provided an in-depth study of the culture, civilization, history and language. Students will be able to communicate in social and professional situations, understand appropriate social and conversational etiquette in a variety of contexts, and much more.
- A 9-day stay in Costa Rica as part of Nursing AD 248/258 clinical courses. Students implement effective community/transcultural nursing strategies to support health promotion and disease prevention using the nursing process, critical thinking and communication skills in a community setting.
