If exploring museums and historical sites in England and Central Europe sounds like something you dream of – we can get you there! The history department at UWEC has multiple opportunities for you to travel abroad to learn about history in other place.
By being abroad, I was able to see tangible evidence of history. I walked into a thousand-year-old cathedral and I touched the walls of a still-standing Roman wall in Winchester.
We are excited to offer the Public History in England study abroad program over the summer as well as a buddy program with Winchester during the school year. These programs allow you to explore the history of another culture and how that impacts the rest of the world. We encourage all of our students to take advantage of study abroad and immersion programs to further develop their education and perspective.
What's National Student Exchange?
Having a new cultural experience does not have to happen overseas. UW-Eau Claire is one of 200 universities participating in National Student Exchange, which allows students to spend a semester at a campus is one of 49 states, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, Canada or Puerto Rico. While paying their Blugold tuition rate, students are able to have a whole new academic and cultural experience, progress toward graduation and gain valuable diversity of perspective.
