Our powerful interdisciplinary academic/study abroad program is an in-depth look at how the Second World War helped shape contemporary issues, providing our program students a strong foundation for their future leadership roles — in their professions, communities, and in the world.
We welcome undergraduate students from diverse disciplines across campus to compete for the 20 places available. During spring semester, program students take a challenging group of history and culture courses related to World War Two that focus on interconnections between the United States and Europe. Additionally, students meet frequently in small-class settings to discuss what they are learning and to exchange ideas. These classes and meetings prepare students for a three-week tour during May semester of World War II sites: memorials, museums, and battlefields in London, Normandy, Paris and Berlin.
