Credits + Travel

You can earn academic credit while traveling abroad during any part of the academic year: spring, summer, fall, or winter.  That is what study abroad is. 

As a student at a State University of New York campus you have over 530 choices of study abroad destinations.  Europe and Australia are the most popular, but there are programs available on every continent; even Antarctica. 

As a student at SUNY Cortland in 2006, I travelled to Mexico for three weeks through SUNY Cortland and  to Ecuador for a semester through SUNY New Paltz.  Between the two destination I earned 18 credits toward my major (21 credits total) and graduated on-time. 

The purpose of this blog is to show anyone interested how to travel.  If you can do it for academic credit, then great.  If not, then that’s great too.  There are thousands of different opportunities to travel and thousands of different reasons to do it.  That should keep me blogging for a while.

    Hi Brent!

    Looks good! For those interested, it would be a cool feature to have a list of travel books, or just books that may be useful for university students in general.
