The NOVA classes in Brazil and China had the opportunity to interact with local students and faculty in the field and the classroom. In Canada, students developed their technical field skills by experiencing a variety of geologic processes as they hiked mountains, canyons and glaciers. In England, NOVA honors students were able to walk in the footsteps of Shakespeare.

Keep your eyes open for study abroad programs to be announced in November for Summer 2015!
