Doane Travel Courses
Doane offers opportunities to see the world through faculty led travel courses that explore academic themes using the world as the classroom. Travel courses provide an experiential learning environment that takes you beyond the classroom. Students will engage in pre-departure content and academic work while traveling and experiencing the things they're learning about.
Students can offset the costs of these trips by using their Travel Scholarship to help cover the cost of the travel courses.
