Travel to a location pertinent to your studies and deepen your learning through first-hand experience. Before, during, and after the international experience, UTM faculty will connect the course content back to the global experience. This is a unique international opportunity that will allow you to deepen your understanding of course material by travelling to a location related to the subject matter, while maintaining your normal semester structure.
