Central Europe: Culture in Vienna and Budapest
viennaThis two week, 3 credit summer program in Central Europe is open to all majors, including undergraduates and graduate students. Students will experience cultural immersion via private walking & biking tours in both Vienna, and Budapest. Students will be engaged in discussions while visiting beautiful castles, palaces, canals, markets, museums, etc. Visiting architectural and historical sights will help to unfold the rich histories as well as the contemporary cultures of the people & locations we visit. Exploration locations include the Belvedere, Vienna Museum District, Vienna Canal, Buda Castle District, Budapest Thermal Bath Houses, and many more. Students will still have ample free time to do further research based on their own interests and areas of study. Following this cosmopolitan cultural immersion, students will retreat into the riverside community of Visegrad, Hungary. Here there will be  opportunities to bike the Danube river, climb to a hilltop castle, take a ferry to Slovakia, etc. There will also be an opportunity to reflect on & present / exhibit findings from our explorations. 
There is a cap on the amount of students that will be included so don’t delay!
Student Loans, Grants, and Scholarships may be used towards this program.
