One of the best—and easiest—ways you can internationalize your education at The University of Tampa is by taking one of the university’s travel courses. Here’s how it works: You enroll in an on-campus course with a travel component. After the on-campus portion, during the summer, spring break or winter intersession, you and your classmates take off, all while earning UT academic credit.

Visit the Office of International Programs to discuss this course with an education abroad advisor and apply online at  Please note: graduating seniors may enroll in this course; however, degrees and diplomas will be delayed until the end of the semester during which the grade is submitted, usually the August degree conferral date.

This course explores the Netherlands and Germany through a series of readings and discussions, and a required travel component that visits Amsterdam and Berlin. Although this is an International Business course, we will also study the history and culture of these two destinations, because they have shaped the modern cities and will continue to influence them in the future. Our course will study historical efforts by the Dutch to gain access to factors of production, and today’s emphasis on sustainability. In addition, we will look at the Dutch tradition of tolerance/permissiveness and how immigration and other factors affect it today. The fall of the Berlin Wall and communism in 1989 created opportunities as well as challenges for the city. Today, Berlin is a vibrant, progressive city that bears the marks of its past division but it moving forward economically. We will talk about some of the opportunities in Berlin as well as the challenges Germany as a whole faces.
