The Office of International Programs will lead a 2018 spring break program to Québec City, Canada, that will introduce students to the culture of a northern climate through sports, activities, food and more. Students will explore Québec City, a francophone city, to get a taste of Europe right here in North America. Activities will include city tours, food and culture tours, a hockey game, a curling lesson, snow-shoeing and even dog sledding!
This program is perfect for students who have never experienced springtime in a colder climate, those who want to experience how climate changes culture or for anyone looking for a spring break that is exciting and against the grain of traditional spring break experiences in the United States. The program and courses will be taught by Dr. Andrew Gillespie, assistant provost for international programs, and Dr. Doug Coutts, distinguished visiting professor and diplomat in residence (retired).
Students will be enrolled in INTL 3930 – Directed International Study: Culture and Sports of Northern Climates for 3 credits. The program cost is $2,750 plus airfare. Please visit aub.ie/OIPQuebecCity for more details.
