View of Granada, Nicaragua. Students will tour Granada as part of COMM 3130, Communication and Religion.
This summer, the College of Communication of the Arts is offering two study-abroad opportunities to Nicaragua and the Netherlands within undergraduate and graduate programs respectively. Over the course of 10 days, students will experience traditions, cultures and uniquely learn about their interests while earning credits toward their degrees.
Presented by the College's Communication program, Communication and Religion in Nicaragua invites students to explore the intersection between religion and politics at the heart of Nicaraguan identity. This will be the first study-abroad course offered by the Department of Communication, Journalism and Public Relations.
The M.A. in Museum Professions program is offering Museums in Holland, the Land of Rembrandt and Van Gogh, which allows students to visit numerous museums and historic sites, offering a "behind the scenes" look at collections, operations and the challenges of museums abroad. Last summer, Museum Professions students were exposed to the history of Berlin's museum landscape and Germany's cultural history and impact in a course titled, Berlin: Reinventing the Cultural Capital.
Detailed descriptions, timelines and contact information is available below.
