The 2011 Honors Study Abroad Program is accepting applications. Led by Associate Dean Kevin Gustafson (English) and Assistant Dean Tim Henry (Biology), the program runs from May 24th until June 14th in England, with additional classroom instruction at UT Arlington.
All students must enroll in two three-credit courses: ENGL 3300: Poetry and Place and SCIE 4392: Science, Discovery, and Impact. Dr. Henry’s SCIE 4392 course covers the history of science and industry in England along with the environmental consequences and remediation. It has been approved for credit under the Natural Science and Engineering section of the Environmental and Sustainability Studies curriculum.
The program fee of $2,300 includes hotels, all breakfasts and two dinners, transportation within England, and admission to all program sites; the fee does not include tuition, roundtrip airfare to England, other meals, and spending money. Students in the program are eligible for financial aid, and other scholarship money is available through both the Honors College and the Office of International Education.
