Travel Study

Take a short-term trip for college credit? Sounds too good to be true, right? But that’s exactly what travel study is, and we encourage you to explore the options.

Opportunities for Students

Join a group from USC Lancaster for an educational tour. We sincerely hope you will consider an investment in your education and decide to take a trip of a lifetime. Nothing educates and enlightens like seeing places that most people only read about. 


Upcoming Adventures

  • Travel Study: Germany, Italy, and Switzerland


Earn Course Credit

  • SOCY 398: Sociology of Culture (Dr. Susan Cruise, Sociology)
  • PSYC 440: Survey of Personality (Dr. Angela Neal, Psychology)

Travel Study Scholarship

Degree-Seeking students of USC Lancaster who have at least a 3.00 GPA who intends to participate in USCL’s summer Travel Study program and will be enrolled in at least 3 credit hours of courses associated with that Travel Study trip, may apply for a $500 scholarship to assist with the cost of travel study expenses.   A limited number of awards are available annually. This scholarship will be awarded by the end of April and must be applied towards travel study expenses.
