Small classes; right history; no boundaries...

Short-Term Study Abroad


The History Department encourages all students to take advantage of the study abroad opportunities that are available.  Although not everyone can devote a full semester or year to an institution abroad, the department endorses a number of short-term studying opportunities that are available to students with difficult schedules.


In 2008, Dr. Kenley took a group of students on a two-week excursion through China.  The students were able to get a taste of Chinese culture during their stay, and were able to see the Forbidden City, the Great Wall, and many other cultural centers.  Since this time, Dr. Kenley has taken multiple student trips to China, in addition to other countries.
