BreakAway Program

The BreakAway program offers students a unique learning opportunity beyond the campus. Faculty members offer courses which include travel off campus, usually for 10 days to three weeks when classes are not in session. Students of any class standing are eligible to participate. Past BreakAways have included: Costa Rica, Mexico, England, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Morocco, Spain, Japan, China, Thailand, a Civil Rights Tour of the South, Tropical Ecology in the Florida Keys, the 2008 Democratic National Convention, and Tornado Chasing in the Midwest. BreakAway destinations for the following academic year are announced in April of the current academic year. Students apply to participate in a given BreakAway. Eligible students may receive a subsidy up to $1,000 toward the cost of the trip. More information about the BreakAway program can be found at
