Coastal offers learning vacations for adults

For adult travelers looking for more than sightseeing and sandy beaches, Coastal Carolina University offers travel-study programs to 18 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 together with "people-to-people" contacts foster an insight and understanding of foreign cultures not available on more conventional tours.

Accommodations are first class, meals are included and groups are small, allowing participants to receive individual attention and make friends. Coastal's groups average 14 participants with some groups as small as eight members, allowing for a close interaction between participants and guides.

Winter 2001 programs will be to Antarctica, Belize, Costa Rica, Egypt, Galapagos Islands and Ecuador, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Kenya, and South Africa.

Spring 2001 programs will include Belize, China, Costa Rica, Egypt, Galapagos Islands and Ecuador, Greece, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Morocco, South Africa, Spain, and Turkey.

These two-week learning vacations for adults range from $2,000 to $5,000 and include meals, first class accommodations, unique learning experiences, and airfare from the tours' departure cities.

For more information about these programs, contact Peter Balsamo, dean of Coastal's Division of Extended Learning and Public Services at (843) 349-2648 or visit the Web site at:
