Otis College is dedicated to the belief that exposure to and engagement with other cultures, people, and experiences broadens the mind and enables a deeper sense of self. Travel Study courses allow students to learn and work together in settings far beyond the College campus, and to see and experience cultural and artistic exemplars and icons, otherwise only accessible through reproductions. See highlights from past Travel Study courses (video below) for a look at some of the life-transforming experiences our students and faculty have enjoyed.
