Study Tour Options

Grand View study tours are spring semester courses that include a faculty-led short-term travel tour. Students take Grand View courses for Grand View credit, while experiencing new and exciting places with other Grand View students. Enroll in courses in the spring semester, attend class on-campus, and complete your course by travelling domestically or internationally either during Spring Break or in May.

The program locations and courses offered vary yearly. Study tours provide great opportunities to travel and learn with Grand View faculty as well as gain real world experience in the field of your academic interests. Plan now to take a trip that will advance you toward your degree, open your eyes to new parts of the world, and give you an edge in the job search! Contact one of the study tour directors for more information.
