Summer Study Abroad

HSS faculty took students around the world this summer, including to Berlin and Argentina (see below), London (criminal justice with Dr. Mary Evans), Japan (Japanese culture and society with Sumiko Gibson), and Israel (archaeology with Dr. Andy Creekmore). Learn more about study abroad.
Ten Spanish students went to San Miguel de Tucumán, Argentina with Assistant Professor Karla Del Carpio, and were hosted by the University of San Pablo Tucuman (USPT) during May and June. Students were able to learn about Argentina’s culture and linguistic richness and visit important cultural and historical places in San Miguel de Tucuman.

Professor Christiane Olivo from the Political Science and International Affairs Department created and led a new study abroad course to Germany this summer. "German Politics and Society: Then and Now" gave students a glimpse into German history, politics and society.
