The University Honors Program encourages Honors students to broaden their multicultural knowledge base and to develop their intercultural skills by participating in study abroad/travel study opportunities. Students may enroll in a Travel Study course through UW-W or matriculate at an accredited institution of higher education in another country. While abroad, they may complete H-Option Projects to earn Honors credits. The experiential learning afforded by studying abroad will better equip students to become global citizens in the twenty-first century.
To support study abroad, the UHP sponsors several $1000 Study Abroad Awards each year. Further, in the spring semester of every odd-numbered year, Honors students may enroll in Travel Study 491: Sociology Honors to Ireland and UK (3 credits). Honors students who have enrolled in this course have attested to the richness of the experience. Sign up for the course, and experience the wonders of the course for yourself!
**The funding source, application process, and deadlines for the Honors Study Abroad Awards curently undergoing revision. The October 15th deadline will therefore NOT apply this year. No applications will be accepted this October. Please check back in November for updates.
