Travel with History
Step outside the classroom and into history as you venture from the medieval castles of Germany to the Reformation monuments in Switzerland, and the ancient sites in Greece and Italy. Revisit some the most defining moments in the development of Western culture and reflect on how the past grows into the present.
History travel study gives students the opportunity to discover the past in a whole new way, bringing to life the people and events we study in the classroom by exploring the sites where history was made.
