Honors Explorations

Since the summer of 2009, John V. Roach Honors College students have been traveling the world through Honors Explorations (formerly known as Honors Abroad). So far, our students have experienced the cultures of:

• Germany
• Switzerland
• Italy
• England
• France
• Poland
• Hungary
• Ireland
• Czech Republic
• Greece

These learning experiences, designed for small groups of Honors students, fulfill the Honors curriculum requirements for Cultural Visions and allow students the opportunity to interact with domestic and international communities. Students cross cultures and gain knowledge and skills necessary to become global citizens.
