Non-Credit Travel Study Programs

Our non-credit travel study programs are designed to educate as well as to entertain, and to enrich the traveler by helping them make sense of a foreign land rather than simply providing viewfinder glimpses of it. Join fellow travelers who want to experience another culture under the guidance of in-country specialists who share their insights about the contemporary, natural, and historical aspects of your destination.

Join us for Travel Night on Tuesday, September 24 at 5:30 p.m. for a preview of Portugal's Gardens (departing May 9, 2014). This presentation in Kremen Education, Room 140, is free and open to the public. For information, email travelstudy@csufresno.edu.
