UTC’s Office of International Programs offers students and faculty a variety of programs to meet their study abroad needs. Currently, UTC offers students over 50 study abroad and exchange opportunities.
UTC has also developed several “stand-alone” programs throughout the world, allowing professors to teach University students in an international setting. UTC has sponsored programs in Oxford, England; Paris, France; Alcala, Spain; Haiti; Greece and Italy; Jamaica and Slovenia. These programs range in length from two to six weeks to a complete academic year.
For instance, Paris as Text, the 2008 summer study abroad trip to France, gave students an opportunity to produce podcasts. Dr. Victoria Steinberg taught classes and Dr. Karen Adsit assists Steinberg in providing technology assistance. View creative student efforts here.
Dr. Kittrell Rushing teaches a cross-disciplinary course designed for students of journalism, history or both titled “Under the kilt,” an intimate look at the history and culture of Scotland. Check out the student journals written on the 2008 trip and learn details of the 2009 trip here.
