Student Learning Trips

Travel embedded in coursework adds a dimension of learning that the classroom alone cannot provide. Faculty-led student learning experiences embody the “family atmosphere” and faculty-student mentoring so frequently identified with Heidelberg University. These trips provide an environment for students to experience growth.
