One of the best—and easiest—ways you can internationalize your education at The University of Tampa is by taking one of the University’s travel courses. Here’s how it works. Enroll in an on-campus course with a travel component. After the on-campus portion or during spring break, you and your classmates take off, all while earning UT academic credit. Each course’s travel component may last from seven days to four weeks and options vary slightly each year.
Where to begin
Visit the Office of International Programs to discuss these program opportunities with an education abroad advisor. Specifically, students may contact Katherine Pazda or Clara Ohannes. Student walk-in hours are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. in Plant Hall 304 and 306. All other times are by appointment.
How to apply
The application deadline for spring semester travel courses is Nov. 15. Please note that once courses reach full enrollment they will be closed. Students must first apply online through the Spartans Abroad Program Portal. Please note that instructor permission is required for all travel courses.
