Gallatin's intensive travel courses are small, discussion-based seminars led by Gallatin faculty which are designed to provide a unique and in-depth exploration of a particular cultural or historical topic found within a foreign country or region. Students experience each location hands-on through visits to museums, galleries, and various sites of historical, cultural, and political significance.
For these courses, the School is looking for dedicated, inquisitive students who are eager to build a community with professors and fellow students while abroad. For details regarding eligibility, please check the course site. Students are encouraged to apply early since most programs are filled on a rolling basis and only completed applications are reviewed. Please note that courses vary from year to year.
