Northwestern's Study Abroad program is a once in a lifetime learning opportunity. Students not only get to take a fascinating course on the country they're visiting but they'll get to experience the lessons for themselves. Many students comment that the trip and the things they've learned will never be forgotten.
Here are a few memorable lessons from previous trips:
- Discussing the Irish fight for independence in the post office that served as the "headquarters" of the Irish rebellion--complete with bullet holes (UK 2012)
- The significance of flamenco dance to Spanish culture while attending a live flamenco performance (Italy & Spain 2014)
- Experience Māori architecture at the Māori Cultural Centre in Rotorua (Australia & New Zealand 2017)
Every year we have travelers join our trip that aren't taking it for course credit. We welcome anyone interested in joining one of our Study Abroad trips to email the appropriate faculty member or fill out the study abroad interest form to join our email list.
