Registration Opens for Study Trip to Turkey

By Amanda Morad | December 7, 2012

From the mosques of Istanbul to the ancient walls of Troy, Turkey is often considered the cradle of civilization. Regent University's School of Education (SOE) is offering a one-of-a-kind opportunity to experience the depth of history and culture of Turkey by taking a study tour June 15-26, 2013.

"We will investigate innovation in education from a global perspective as we begin our adventure in [the capital city of] Ankara," said trip leader Dr. Hope Jordan, a professor in SOE. The group will also visit the cities of Cappadocia, Ephesus and Istanbul.

"Turkey has a rich history—that history has significance for Christians with such historic sites as Ephesus, the Hagia Sophia, Laodicea, and the church cave of St. Peter," said Jordan. Outings to each of these sites and others are scheduled throughout the 10-day trip.

Graduate and undergraduate students are invited to participate and earn three credit hours for the study tour. The trip is also open to the community at large. "Anyone who would like to collaborate and learn from teachers and educational leaders while visiting this ancient nation is welcome to join the class," Jordan added.

Of the many highlights of the trip will be a Best Practices in Education roundtable, hosted by Jordan and the team and involving Turkish university and K-12 educators.

Participants will earn three credits at a special reduced tuition rate. Registration for the trip is now open and final travel expenses will be due April 15.
