CONCORDIA STUDENTS TRAVEL ABROAD
More than 150 Concordia College students are studying abroad this spring and summer. Five May Seminars offered this spring have 67 students visiting approximately 13 countries, another four students will be participating in Summer Field Studies in Rwanda, and 79 students will be in the Summer Abroad Program in China, England, Greece, Norway, South Africa and Vietnam.
Students participating in May Seminars Abroad will visit much of Europe studying the historical roots of Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy; getting an in-depth look at American public policies versus European approaches to the same policies; exploring European theatrical traditions and performance spaces in Greece, Italy, England and the Czech Republic; and visiting Egypt, Greece, Italy, France and England to gain understanding in the knowledge required for the development of mathematics.
The seminars are designed to enhance learning; some include an on-campus course and an off-campus travel seminar led by Concordia faculty. The courses contain background information necessary to understand and appreciate the travel experience of various countries and academic disciplines.
Concordia College is a four-year liberal arts college of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America offering 75 majors, including 18 honors majors, and 12 preprofessional programs.
