In 2012, the Office of International Programs launched Expedition Fellows, a unique study abroad program for UW Tacoma's first and second year students. Each year, Expedition Fellows provides an outstanding opportunity for a small group of students and a faculty member to explore an academic topic of mutual interest together in an international and/or intercultural setting. To learn more about the pedagogical basis and development of Expedition Fellows, visit Expedition Fellows Program Pedagogy.
In 2015, Expedition Fellows will travel to Costa Rica on a program led by Dr. John "Buck" Banks. Expedition Fellows will focus on Sciences and Math (SAM) studies at UWT. This two-credit program gives students the opportunity to experience what it's like to study in the field and have a chance to develop a new, global perspective. Full details for the 2015 Expedition Fellows program will be posted in early fall. Please check back for further information.
