For adult travelers looking for more than sightseeing and sandy beaches, Coastal Carolina University offers travel-study programs to more than 15 foreign countries. The tours emphasize learning, with opportunities for first-hand education about history, culture and customs. On-site lectures, seminars and field experiences provided by faculty escorts and in-country specialists foster an insight and understanding of foreign cultures not available on more conventional tours.

Travel groups are small, allowing participants to receive individual attention and make friends. Coastals groups average 14 participants with some groups as small as eight members, allowing for a close interaction between participants and guides.

Spring 2001 programs will be to Belize, China, Costa Rica, Egypt, the Galapagos Islands and Ecuador, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Morocco, South Africa, and Turkey.

Summer 2001 programs will include China, Egypt, the Galapagos Islands and Ecuador, Greece, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Kenya, Nova Scotia, Peru, South Africa, Spain and Turkey.

These learning vacations for adult learners range from $2,000 to $5,000 and include meals, first class accommodations, unique learning experiences, and airfare from the tours departure cities.
