Education Studies Cultural Immersion

New cultures nearby

You don’t have to travel abroad for an amazing cultural immersion experience. In education studies you can gain a better understanding of different cultures by traveling anywhere from Milwaukee to Washington, D.C. and beyond. Don’t miss out on opportunities to travel and gain a new perspective by immersing yourself in other cultures throughout the country or world. If you are interested, make sure to talk to your advisor early in your program to plan these experiences into your academic coursework.
