In this program, Ohio State students from diverse disciplines and backgrounds will study with three Ohio State professors various aspects of World War II, with a particular focus on the United States and Europe. They will take a challenging group of history and culture courses in the spring semester, meeting frequently in a small-class setting to exchange ideas, to discuss their research, and to prepare for the second portion of the program- a three-week tour of World War II sites, memorials and museums in Europe during the May Session. This powerful interdisciplinary program, emblematic of Ohio State's motto, "education for citizenship", will furnish the students a strong foundation for their future roles as American leaders in government, business, academia, and other professions.

The most valuable thing I gained were the close friendships with both the students as well as the faculty.
