Minot State study-abroad trips headed to Peru, Spain and Morocco
Students and the community have their choice of cultural experiences in 2009, thanks to study-abroad programs at Minot State University headed to Europe, Africa and South America. The application deadline for this year’s tours has been extended to Feb. 1.
Through Horizons Unlimited, two faculty-led tours will happen this summer. MSU students are encouraged to include an international experience in their overall MSU education. The community is also invited to join the tours as an excellent educational opportunity.
"Horizons Unlimited study tours are a great way to learn and see the world," said Libby Claerbout, director of international programs at Minot State University. "With these tours all logistical arrangements are provided and participants will travel in the company and comfort of an MSU faculty member who is familiar with the culture and customs of the host country."
The month-long tour to Peru is from May 29 to June 30. This tour will be led by Kemerly Moorhouse, Spanish instructor at MSU. Moorhouse was born and raised in the capital city of Peru, Lima, and considers herself a Peruvian cultural ambassador. Those who choose to participate in this tour will have the opportunity to visit Machu Picchu, "The Lost City of the Incas," as well as Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world.
The study-abroad trip to Spain and Morocco will take place May 21-31. Participants in this tour will spend time in Madrid, the capital of Spain, Seville and Barcelona. They will also take an excursion across the Mediterranean Sea to visit the country of Morocco. Leading the tour is Andrea Donovan, assistant professor of art history and humanities, who specializes in European art and architectural history.
