Spotlight on Study Abroad:

The Honors College is now accepting deposits for all 2018 study abroad courses. Deposits are accepted electronically only on a first come, first served basis.

Where will YOU go?

> Social Capital in the City, Rome, Italy
Through academic, cultural and co-curricular activities, students will explore and observe the influence of social capital in Italy and compare and contrast it with their experiences in the United States.

> Art and Culture of Japan, Osaka and Kyoto, Japan
The course offers students the opportunity to study Japanese art and architecture on site by visiting world heritage sites such as Byodo-in Buddhist temple, the Kamo Shinto shrine, and the Nijo Castle; studying masterpieces of Japanese sculpture and painting; firsthand training in the basic practices of woodblock printing; and a Buddhist temple stay.

> You Had To Be There: The Significance of Place in English Literature, London and Surrounding Countryside, United Kingdom
More than simply recording London's changing geography and the vicissitudes of urban life, the texts we read have shaped its unique and enduring character as well as our broader understanding of its personal significance and social impact. Together we will examine how representations of the city affect our attitudes and beliefs about morality, sexuality, consumerism, and progress.

> Tracing the Holocaust, Germany, Poland, and The Netherlands

This program takes us to a part of the world where Nazi Germany carried out the "final solution to the Jewish question" under the cover of World War II. At every stop, we will investigate how the Holocaust is remembered and forgotten, and how young Ukrainians, Poles, and Germans come to grips with an unspeakable past.

> American College of Greece Honors Exchange Program, Athens, Greece
The program in Greece is designed to amplify the academic experience abroad by offering students unique opportunities to link classroom learning to real world experience, while living and studying in Athens, a dynamic international global center.

> Malawi
Join the College of Information and Communications on a journalistic jaunt to Africa. Students will participate in documentary production and communication activities.

> Smithsonian Open Door Externship, Washington, D.C., USA
Students will engage in a program that offers behind-the-scene tours, conversations with experts, and guided seminars on a range of topics related to research, policy, programs, and operations at the world’s largest museum.
