About the Course
3 Credit Course
While we believe that it is important to experience the world the way it is, we have grown concerned over the escalation of civil unrest in Hong Kong. As a result, we have decided not to travel there at this time. We are relocating to Tokyo, Japan.
Whether it’s within ourselves or between us and the world, maintaining balance is a constant struggle. Tokyo offers a particularly exciting backdrop to study the topic of balance. With historic temples living among neon-lit skyscrapers, participants will be surrounded with the concept of honoring the past while envisioning the future.
We’re driven in our commitment of creating agents of change to serve our global community. Education Beyond Borders: Balance in Context is a cross-disciplinary, two-month course that culminates in a six-day study abroad experience in Tokyo, Japan.
