The Advanced Honors Trip is open to all honors students, but may be especially interesting to students in the STEM fields. Students will study culture through the lens of science and engineering. You will travel and experience new cities and two different countries, exploring ideas about the relationship of art to engineering, and science to literature and music. You will earn six units of humanities general education credit at no cost; summer tuition is included as part of the trip.
Tentative 2017 dates: June 1 - 30
All students will earn 6 units by participating in this program.

London, England & The Netherlands
Your trip will begin in London, where we’ll spend two weeks exploring the city – its culture and the built environment as it exists now, and as it has done over centuries. You will travel around the city in small groups, learning about what the city offers by directly experiencing it. You will learn about the food, art, literature, music and neighborhoods of incredibly diverse London. Expect to feel like a native Londoner by the end of our trip. Then on to The Netherlands!
We will be based in Leiden, in South Holland, a centrally located city along the Old Rhine, with much of its 17th century architecture intact. The long and fascinating history of this city will prepare us for excursions throughout the country, where we will explore waterways of all kinds – in history, in literature, and in our own experience – as a lens through which to learn about European culture.
Students will stay in various hotels in London and various cities in the Netherlands.
