Like the Science Maymester, Croatia Maymester Study Abroad offers students an opportunity to study in different disciplines with top faculty - for this program, in a slice of Europe between the Adriatic and the Danube:
Croatia is a beautiful and culturally rich country with crystal-clear seas, more than 1,100 islands, countless beaches and harbors, unspoiled villages, mountains, vineyards, Roman ruins, medieval towns, and baroque cities. You find a rich cultural heritage everywhere you look . The Romans and Venetians left a Latin influence on the coast, while the interior's Central European heritage is a legacy of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Today Croatia is a stable, peaceful, easygoing country that has applied for admission to the European Union.
The Croatia program, which started on May 13 and runs through June 5 this year, offers students:
the opportunity to earn six hours credit studying various aspects of Croatian culture and society while traveling through this beautiful and fascinating country. Courses are taught by UGA faculty and use active engagement approaches that will take students into different regions and allow them to interact with scholars from Croatian universities and research institutes, local government officials, leaders of non-governmental organizations, and citizens from different walks of life.
Faculty on the trip this year are from Germanic and Slavic languages, politocal science, environment and design, and health promotion and behavior. That should about cover it. Ajmo!
