Global Learning

There’s a whole planet to explore. Travel courses at Oxford combine academics with experience as you study in communities across Georgia, the US, and the world.

Our for-credit travel courses provide a rigorous academic experience and unique opportunities for personal development. From learning to assess real-life situations to honing the social skills to be an effective leader, our travel courses will push you to grow.

Listening and learning from people who live day to day through what you might read in a textbook is unparalleled. This trip fomented countless points of reflection and criticism regarding our current conditions in the United States and globally.
