Gallatin's intensive travel courses are small, discussion-based seminars with Gallatin faculty that 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.
Gallatin is looking for dedicated, inquisitive students who are eager to build a community with professors and fellow students while abroad. For details regarding elligibility, 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 form year to year.
