Travel Study

Interested in spending the summer studying in Italy, Scotland, or Germany?  One of the highlights of SFU's Graduate Liberal Studies is our bi-annual Travel Study option.  Our GLS students have many opportunities to participate in full-credit field-school courses organized by Simon Fraser or by other universities with GLS programs.

Our Travel Study courses integrate academic studies with real world experiences as small groups of GLS students tour European cities while learning about their history and cultural significance.  Seminars are related to classical and modern texts read on location and tours are led by SFU faculty as well as guest speakers privy to local perspectives.   

Simon Fraser's GLS students also  have the opportunity to take travel study courses from Duke University. These courses offer transferable credit to SFU and count towards degree completion. See Stephen Duguid for more information on how to apply.

A field school located in Spain is currently being developed for May, 2018. Tentatively, the field school will be based in Granada and Cordoba, with side-trips to Seville.
