Helsinki, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin and Amsterdam
September 3-22, 2012
This year's international travel study will take students to the Scandinavian cities of Helsinki, Stockholm and Copenhagen as well as Berlin and Amsterdam to explore the cultural, environmental and creative contributions of these cities to our global society.
Scandinavia is known for its environmental management and sustainable development that has influenced countries around the world. We will explore these efforts to gain a greater understanding of how to sustain a culture, economics and society in our growing world.
In Berlin, we will learn about their struggles in overcoming horrific events and reestablish a new society that is growing to this day. Berlin is a city rich in culture that has recently been open to the world and is now a major global contributor.
Amsterdam is a city rich in culture, and subculture, which lends itself to artistic contributions while sustaining a unique cultural heritage. We will explore Amsterdam's contribution to economic globalization and the creative arts.
