The WSU Travel Study Program is designed to enrich the students' educational experience while broadening their intellectual, cultural, and social horizons. The program consists of credit-based coursework offered through various academic departments and taught by WSU faculty. The number of credits earned varies depending on the nature and extent of the learning experience provided. Courses typically last two to eight weeks and are taught in various countries including the United States. Travel study courses provide students the opportunity to engage in field research, service learning, and immersion into different communities and cultures. Courses are usually interdisciplinary and, therefore, provide students with an opportunity to integrate learning across several fields of knowledge.
Students and faculty interested in participating in or organizing a travel study course should contact the Outreach and Continuing Education Department (OCED) office, which oversees the program and arranges the logistics for travel study offerings. The OCED office can provide additional enrollment information, a list of specific travel study opportunities, and answers to frequently asked questions.
