MOROCCO Spring Break 2023
The College is offering students a unique opportunity to study and travel abroad for one week in March during spring break in Morocco. Students must apply and be enrolled in INTR 202 Global Studies Seminar in order to travel and participate in this educational tour.

Morocco is a North African country bordering the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea where vibrant traditions are preserved, mountains and deserts adorn the landscape, and the marks of history abound through the cultural influences of Berbers, Arabs, and Europeans.

On the educational tour, students will explore the bustling markets and medina of coastal Tangiers, cook a traditional chicken and olive tagine in the beautiful blue city of Chefchaouen, visit the Roman ruins of Volubilis, tour the medieval alleyways and artisan shops of Fez …and more!
