Study Tours

Institute students and faculty travel the world as a group for study tours every other year; the Institute defrays most of the costs of the tours. In 2004 the Institute visited Denmark and Sweden, and in May 2006 the destination was Mexico. More recently, the Institute visited Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, and Croatia in 2008; in 2010, Germany; in 2012 Turkey and Greece; and in 2014, Italy.

Preparation for the study tour includes reading and discussion on a variety of related topics, and is supported by Colloquium lectures, student presentations, courses, and performances. Arguably, the preparation is nearly as valuable is the trip itself!

On recent tours we have asked some students to write their impressions. Follow the link below to read about their latest tour, and click the links to the left to read more of their stories.
