Honors Travel Programs

The Barrett Honors College highly encourages its students to enhance their educational experience by studying abroad. Studying outside the United States expands students’ global perspective and adds knowledge and awareness they cannot receive with just a basic university education. Students who have studied abroad report that it is their most important and meaningful educational experience, one they will remember for the rest of their lives.
