Aurora University — Opportunities for Global Study

Students are transformed by AU's global initiatives. Pursue a May travel/study course. Attend an on-campus event with an international focus. You’ll start to discover what it means to be a citizen of the world. Today your education requires a global perspective.

Aurora University offers several avenues for learning about our complex, interdependent world.

Travel in May with AU Faculty

Travel in May offers courses specifically developed for travel/study trips to destinations in the United States and abroad. Previous courses have included travel to the Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Spain, and more. In addition to offering students the opportunity to learn about a culture firsthand, many of the trips also include a service component.

AU also occasionally offers an affiliate course (register at AU for this course in Spring; travel in May) in marine and island ecology of the Bahamas through the Associated Colleges of the Chicago Area (ACCA) and the Shedd Aquarium.
