2014 Student Travel Destinations

We offer four types of programs: expeditions, field workshops, photography workshops, and community service programs. All of our trips range from eleven days to three weeks. On our expeditions, you'll experience the best of the destination through in-depth exploration of a country or region. Our field and photography workshops are shorter, with one or two bases from which you'll set out to explore our spectacular surroundings. On each trip, you'll pursue an On Assignment project of your choice that will enhance your understanding of the cultures and environments you visit, and improve your skills and knowledge in your selected focus area.
