CJ Cultural Immersion

Become immersed

As a Blugold, you're encouraged to immerse yourself into a culture that isn't necessarily your own. In the CJ department, we take this opportunity very seriously. We have trips that can take you all the way to France or down to Selma, Alabama. All immersion trips are faculty-led and can last anywhere from a week to a semester long. No matter where you go, the impact the trip will leave will last a lifetime.
