This travel seminar emphasizes getting beyond classroom walls and learning about Central Europe’s modern history and culture as well as recent transitions and dynamic economies. During this intellectually challenging travel seminar, participants learn about influential leaders of Central Europe: Lech Walesa, Vaclaw Havel, John Paul II, and their roles in the democratic transformation of Central Europe. Students will meet with think tanks, ministers, and locals as they all explain their experiences and stories to help them have a comprehensive understanding of the difficulties their specific region or city has faced historically or in the present. The rigorous curriculum will be enhanced with activities that include several cultural and historical excursions to Warsaw, Gdańsk, Krakow, Prague, and Berlin. The tours give students a better understanding of the European Union, Modern European History, Economic Development as well as Pop Culture. Participants have a chance to visit museums and cultural sites often known from popular films and novels. This program will be complimented by several cultural events and lectures featuring artists and intellectuals from Central Europe.
