What is Academic Traveler?

The Academic Traveler is a non-credit educational travel program offered through the Division of Outreach and The University of Mississippi. We are pleased to present a series of opportunities that meld unique travel experiences and education.

UM instructors from a variety of disciplines lead the excursions. Programs may cover literature, art, history, photography and film, and culinary arts in locations such as London, New York, Japan, France, and Tanzania.

In order to provide the most individualized attention and to gain access to unique opportunities at our destination, program size is limited. Applicants are accepted in the order applications and deposits are received. Early registration is encouraged to ensure your space.
