Study Abroad Opportunities

HIST 379 - London: The City Experience (3 credit hours - Spring semester 2018)

Study Abroad

The course has a HIST prefix but will be a good fit for students in a variety of majors since the course and the activities planned in London involve legal, economic, cultural, political, and social topics and issues. The trip schedule includes special guided tours of Westminster Abbey, the Old Bailey, the Inns of Court, and the Royal Courts of Justice as well as a host of other exciting locations.

We're starting the planning process for this trip early because WIU is launching a brand-new partnership with overseas student travel leader, EF College Tours, and this course will be the inaugural EF/WIU trip. Traveling with EF means years of experience and unprecedented access to sites and activities. It also opens the door to EF scholarship opportunities, Early Bird discounts and payment plans, tips and support for fundraising for your trip, and more.

If you are at all interested, I highly encourage you to fill out an application to determine eligibility (an authorization to check hours, GPA, and Student Judicial clearance) to help prepare you to take advantage of the April $100 discount. Submitting the application is completely free and does not indicate any commitment on your part!
