For adult travelers looking for more than sightseeing and sandy beaches, Coastal Carolina University offers travel-study programs to destinations throughout the world. 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 to make friends. Groups average approximately 14 participants, allowing for close interaction between participants and guides.
Spring 2003 programs will be to Belize, Central Europe, China, Costa Rica, Egypt, the Galapagos Islands and Ecuador, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Morocco, Peru, Spain and Turkey.
Summer 2003 programs will include Alaska, Australia, Central Europe, China, Egypt, the Galapagos Island and Ecuador, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Kenya, Peru, Spain and Turkey.
