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.

No amount of reading or lecture can prepare you for stepping foot on Omaha Beach, or walking through Auschwitz. These are moments I will remember for the remainder of my life. This program allows you to learn about your topic before you leave. With all of your basic learning out of the way you are really able to dive deeper into the content you receive while abroad. The places you visit compliment your classroom learning as you experience them first hand. The program takes you all over Europe, so you aren't tied down to one place. You really get to see a lot of different places and people. It's unlike anything I have ever experienced in my life. The class before the trip really allows you to get to know the people you will be traveling with, so you already have that base relationship going into the trip. The relationships I made on this trip are some of the strongest I have ever made. This trip is truly the highlight of my undergraduate career.
