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.
HOW TO APPLY?
Visit the Office of International Programs to discuss this course with an education abroad advisor and apply online at ut.studioabroad.com. 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 allows nursing and public health students to study and travel to the Monteverde Institute in Costa Rica to apply community health promotion and disease prevention concepts in a transcultural environment. In addition, the travel component of the course includes guided tours covering the culture and history of the country.
