COM 212 headerIntl Money WHAT IS A UT TRAVEL COURSE?
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 takes students abroad to produce a documentary film about community development in Cuenca, Ecuador. Students will meet with Dr. Christopher Boulton once-a-week during the second half of the Spring semester, then travel to Cuenca during the month of June to research and produce a social issue documentary emphasizing visual storytelling. In addition to shooting and editing their films on location, students will have the option of participating in cultural activities ranging from culinary and dance classes, guided visits to museums, shopping in open-air markets, hiking in national parks, exploring archaeological sites, and relaxing in hot springs. The course culminates with a public screening of the students’ documentaries for the local community. There are no language or production prerequisites for this course and its focus on media activism, public policy, and social entrepreneurship should interest students majoring in Communication, Entrepreneurship, Government and World Affairs, Public Health, and Sociology. This course is open to non-Honors students.
