The Traveling Research and Immersion Program (TRIP) is a short-term, course-related, faculty-led trip to either a domestic or international location. It's designed to engage students in active learning experiences that enhance and expand upon topics learned in the classroom.
Students are exposed to primary historical sites and archives that model varities of applied research. Upon their return to campus, students will integrate their field experiences with their traditional coursework.
A TRIP usually takes place during spring break. In order to enroll in a course, permisssion from the faculty is required. Students gain an opportunity for an off-campus learning experience without concern for cost. TRIP covers all necessary travel costs associated with the program, including local transportation, accommodation and meals, fees for guides or lectures, and visa costs. Personal expenses, such as passport fees or souvenirs, are not covered.
