All instruction for this program will be conducted in English.  While previous experience with German may be helpful, it is not required for participation on this program.
All participants willl register for 3 credits for SWG 590-Human Rights Exploration during the Spring 2018 term with the travel portion of the course taking place after the end of the spring semester (approximately May 19- June 1, 2018). Required on-campus class meetings will be held during spring semester and there will be assignments due during the spring term as well.

In addition to the regular WCU tuition/fee rates for the 3 credit hour course (included in full-time students’ regular spring semester tuition), all participants will be billed a Program Fee of $1,100 which covers all housing accommodations, meals (with the exception of 2 meals), ground transportation (airport transfers, on-site transportation), all cultural activities, and excursions. In addition, all students will be billed the non-refundable $100 study abroad application fee through the Bursars Office upon applying to the program and will be required to purchase WCU's mandatory international insurance post-acceptance.

Not included in the cost above is the round-trip airline ticket (estimated $1,000) which all participants will pay for separately (though a specific itinerary will be identified for the group).
