Why Study Abroad With Us?
Our programs combine travel, a sense of adventure, and academic credit to provide a truly unique study abroad experience. You will travel throughout the country with a group of ~15 - 30 students on faculty-led programs that are 25% classroom and 75% field-based.
By receiving credit for educational travel programs that occur during the summer or winter months, you can enjoy all the benefits of studying abroad while also graduating on-time or even earlier!
Our programs are the most affordable available. This occurs because (1) you will pay in-state tuition, and (2) you travel as a group, thereby reducing fixed costs for accommodations, transportation, activities, and classrooms, etc.
We strive to provide the most academically rewarding, personally enriching, and cost-effective programs possible. Our students often comment that this was the single-most influential experience of their college careers (see student comments).
Study abroad is an investment in your future. Today's companies are seeking to employ people with cross-cultural communication, global views, and problem-solving skills. Not only do our programs introduce you to potential employers for internship and/or career opportunities but it encourages the development of life-long learning skills that help you compete for positions in an increasingly diverse and international workplace.
Our faculty-led, group participation approach is ideal for students with limited or no international travel experience. Past students often comment on the new friendships they develop, how easy and smooth the programs operate, and the positive relationships that are nurtured with faculty and staff. Furthermore, the South Pacific is a relatively safe travel destination, meaning that our programs are particularly suitable for students traveling abroad for the very first time. However, the diversity and breadth of activities and educational travel also means that even seasoned travelers will experience something new.
