This is a study tour that focuses on the cultural and religious history of the areas being visited. Prior to the tour, you will explore each area's geography, philosophy, theology, missions, literature, and arts through lectures, and you will complete several reading assignments. You must attend the lectures pertaining to the area being visited and complete the assigned journal/papers. Further requirements will be included in the syllabus. Instructors are CIU faculty members, and the program and tour itinerary are entirely planned and supervised by CIU faculty members. You will spend at least as much time in preparation, required lecture periods, and prescribed activities as is normally required for resident courses.
