SAMPLE STUDY TRIPS FOR THE POLISH CULTURAL PROGRAM

For our Polish Cultural Studies Program, the university organizes a unique study travel program. Each destination includes aspects of education, tourism, and fun. Every study trip focuses on the literary, cultural, historical, social, and political characteristics and features that the study trip specifically targets. If the study trip destination is to a larger city that contains a university, lectures with professors of the particular university and meetings with local student groups are possible to arrange.

The costs of travel and accommodation of one study trip, to be determined by the university, are included in the program fee. The costs of all other study trips are borne by the student.

Below is a sample list of excursions.
