Southeastern Louisiana University’s (SELU) “Operation Overlord 2016” is the ideal study abroad experience for students with busy summer schedules who want to visit some of the most significant sites of World War II, explore London and Paris, and do so all within a 10-day trip.
Through readings, written assignments submitted by email, and site visits, participants can earn up to six hours of undergraduate or graduate credit; a non-credit option allows family and friends to go along.
All European lodging and transportation are included, making this program an easy introduction to the adventure of foreign travel without the anxiety of finding safe hotels, deciphering train schedules, or driving on the left hand side of the road.
Participants also have the liberty of arranging their own travel to and from Europe, so they may depart from any airport, and add extra days for exploring on their own.
For students who cannot afford the time and cost of a lengthy study abroad program, or whose university does not offer a foreign study experience, SELU’s “Operation Overlord 2016” is an opportunity to learn about the Normandy Campaign not just from books but by walking the ground where history was made.
