Study Abroad Programs

The Anthropology & Sociology Department encourages students to take advantage of the many study abroad programs offered at Kutztown University. Benefits of studying abroad include gaining a new perspective on the world and first-hand experience with different cultures, as well as learning new research methods. Moreover, studying abroad can compliment and enhance your studies in anthropology and sociology.

Kutztown University and other organizations offer a number of scholarships to help students fund overseas study. Anthropology and Sociology Faculty, as well as the staff of KU's International Office are more than happy to help you if you are interested in studying abroad during the summer, winter, or during the regular academic year.

At present, our faculty offer the following courses overseas:

ANT/SOC 106: History & Culture of Turkey [brochure]

Blue Mosque

The course will take place in the great city of Istanbul. Istanbul spans two continents and contains numerous monuments, museums, mosques, and other attractions that provide insight into Turkey's history and culture. During the program students will visit such famous sites, as Topkapi Palace, the Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, the Grand Bazaar, Galata Tower, and the Mosque of Süleyman the Magnificent. Students will also have an opportunity to take a boat tour of the Bosphorus Straights and sample Turkish cuisine at famous restaurants, visit Turkish schools, universities, and cultural foundations. Study in Istanbul will be supplemented by day trips to locations of interest nearby, such as the Princes' Islands and the historic cities of Bursa and Edirne.
