Learn more about cultural experiences

On a cultural expedition, you will learn to be a curious and respectful guest in new cultural environments. You’ll spend time developing your cultural competence and learning to approach cross-cultural differences with curiosity. You will learn about local culture, history, and language, and reflect on the values of your own culture from a different perspective. Depending on your course, you may live with a host family or spend time visiting various communities.
