Today's students are more international than those of any previous generation. Study Abroad programs remain the gold standard for pursuing academic studies in other countries, but many students are also interested in short, intensive experiences of one to three weeks. The SAS Honors Program is pleased to offer its students such global, interdisciplinary opportunities.
Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico
Spend your Spring Break exploring ancient ruins, swimming in underground lakes, hiking a rainforest, sleeping in small towns, and meeting with local villagers. Join Dean Julio Nazario on the stunning SAS Honors trip to the Yucatan peninsula. Learn applications of history, archaeology, anthropology, and ecological science from local guides. Students will visit Mayan sites such as Chichen Itza and Izamal, key Spanish colonial cities including Mérida, and the Kaxil Kiuic Ecological Reserve in the jungle outside Merida. Be prepared to climb pyramids, eat like a local, and snorkel in tropical seas.
Costa Rica trip with the Global Renewable Energy Education Network
Interested in the environment, science, entrepreneurship, international study, or sustainable development? Join the SAS Honors Program on the GREEN program in Costa Rica, a two-week, 3-credit- course offering an unparalleled introduction to the cutting-edge industry of renewable energy. This dynamic, interdisciplinary program is offered in collaboration with GREEN (Global Renewable Energy Education Network), a Rutgers-founded organization that introduces students to hands-on study and career-building networking in the field of clean energy and sustainable development.
