Study Abroad Graphic
Honors Study Abroad : Scotland 2013
Join other UTA students and Professors Karl Petruso and Stanley Palmer for Study Abroad in Scotland, Summer I, 2013.
Experience the pleasure of living and learning in an international setting, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Highlights of the program include:
  • Receive 6 hours of upper-level UT Arlington credit (two courses). There are no prerequisites.
  • Team-taught by Karl Petruso (Anthropology) and Stanley Palmer (History).
  • We will be based in comfortable residence halls of the University of Edinburgh but will travel by hired coach, train and ship to the English Borders, the Highlands, and the Orkney Islands. We will hike on Ben Nevis (the highest peak in the UK), explore mysterious megalithic circles and tombs dating to the Stone and Bronze Ages, and clamber on several magnificent castles both ruined and restored (including Dun Ottar, Tantallon, and Stirling). We will experience a decidedly non-Texas landscape and climate: in mid-June the sun sets only briefly at that latitude, and while temperatures in the 60s and 70s will be typical during the day, it will certainly rain, and at times the mercury might dip into the 40s.

Enrollment is limited, so early application is strongly encouraged. Interviews of applicants will begin in November. Offers of admission will be made on a rolling basis with a view to finalizing the roster of participants by March 2013.
