Brandywine hosts travel to Barcelona, Rome/Florence and China in 2013-14

Penn State Brandywine Global Programs has released its upcoming study abroad lineup for the 2013-14 academic year.

In November 2013 (over Thanksgiving break), the campus will travel to Barcelona, Spain, followed by spring break 2014 in Rome and Florence, Italy and an additional trip in the spring to China. More details about these programs will be released shortly.

Students who wish to travel to Barcelona will receive a $50 discount if they sign up and pay their deposit by August 1.

Each of the three programs provides distance education courses with short-term travel to destinations worldwide. Courses, while not yet finalized, are available to students at any Penn State University location. Each course in each program includes pre-travel and post-travel coursework to be completed on an independent study basis, working with the instructor through distance education technologies and on one's own schedule and pace.

The travel component of the courses is six to nine days in length, taking place during breaks in the University's academic calendar. The program's aim to bring international, academic and immersion experiences within the financial reach of as many Penn State students as possible. Accordingly, travel arrangements through Celestial Voyagers tour agency are designed to be very affordable, and scholarship opportunities are available, including the Brandywine Global Programs Award.
