From Britain to Beijing, from Rome to the Great Barrier Reef, UGA students are or will soon be setting off for study abroad programs around the globe in every imaginable discipline:
The overall aim of the [UGA Maymester in Morocco] course is to introduce students to an in-depth and first-hand understanding of Islam and Islamic culture in Morocco, in particular to Sufism (which is currently undergoing a revival in Morocco), Moroccan Islamic music, and Moroccan architectural art. In addition, through travel students will gain first-hand experience with both urban and rural geography: we will visit three major cities and a variety of villages off the beaten path as well as Moroccan mountains, valleys, plains, deserts, forests, rivers, waterfalls, and oases. Students will become acquainted with the socio-religious and socio-political issues that are shaping both the Islamic world and Morocco.
And that's just one example. Explore many more opportunities at the links above. Needless to say though we will, these are the students you want to be this summer, this year. Best of luck and safe travels to all of our faculty, staff and students who are out and about this summer, learning about the world and themselves as they represent the best of UGA.
