The program is open to all academically eligible undergraduate UW-Eau Claire students. You must be in good academic standing and have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.3. You may apply as a freshman but must have at least sophomore standing by the time the program begins.
During Spring 2016, you must take a mandatory four-credit preparatory course, History 327: Preparatory Study for Central European Travel Seminar, which fulfills GE-IVC and Foreign Culture. This course meets on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4:30-5:45pm.
While on the seminar, you will take a three-credit interdisciplinary course (IDIS 340/540, GE-V) on the art history, geography, and music of Central Europe. The course fulfills three credits of the Foreign Culture requirement. (Note that students pursuing a B.A., B.F.A., or B.M. degree in the College of Arts & Sciences MUST take the equivalent of two semesters of a foreign language to fulfill the FL/FC requirement. See the university catalogue for details.)
The 2016 program dates are May 31 - June 28, 2016. You will arrive into Berlin, Germany and depart out of Krakow, Poland.
