The art of London and the Spanish language and culture of Guatemala will be the focus of two international study opportunities Nicolet College is offering in January.
During the London Study Tour Jan. 2 to Jan. 13, students will visit many of the finest museums and historic sites in and around one of the world’s most culturally-rich cities. The study tour class includes three University Transfer art credits. The cost is $2,562.75 and includes tuition, airfare from Rhinelander, ground travel, lodging, breakfasts, entrance to museums and Les Miserables, visits to Stonehenge and Salisbury Cathedral, and travel insurance.
Museum visits will include the British Museum, National Gallery, National Portrait Gallery, Tate Britain, Tate Modern Gallery, and the Victoria and Albert Museum. The tour will be led by Nicolet art instructor Bob Kanyusik, who has taught art at Nicolet for 30 years and led the London Study Tour for 14 years.
The Spanish Study Tour to Quetzaltenango, Guatemala, will run Dec. 28 to Jan. 13. Participants will immerse themselves in Guatemalan culture and the Spanish language by living with local host families and attending Spanish language classes in the morning, and cultural events and service learning activities in the afternoon.
The four-credit, University Transfer language classes cover a broad range of Spanish-speaking proficiency, ranging from no previous experience with the language to those who are approaching conversational fluency. A three-credit service learning class is also available for those who are fluent in Spanish. Possible service learning projects include art and cultural outreach, education, eco-tourism, public health, construction and human rights.
Cost for the language class option is $2,402. The service learning class cost is $2,237.75. This includes tuition, airfare from Wausau, ground transportation, accommodations with a Guatemalan family that include a private bedroom, meals, event fees, guided travel excursions, Internet access and travel insurance.
