Traveling Minds: Global Studies Opportunities at RCDS [Video]

Impelled by the guiding question "How can we continually make our school better?", RCDS signature programs seek ways to advance and embed our core values throughout our program and community. Each year, the Global Studies signature program offers travel opportunities for Upper School students. During these transformational journeys, students deepen their classroom learning through immersion and global awareness and connection.

In this video, you'll hear from students and faculty about their experiences last summer traveling to Iceland to learn about climate change and renewable energy; to Spain for a choral tour; to the U.S./Mexico Border for a study of international relations, immigration, and politics; and to Georgia and Alabama to explore Civil Rights History in the American South.

Rooted in interdisciplinary learning, RCDS travel programs are designed in partnership with the School’s other Signature Programs. Last year’s trips represented collaborations between Global Studies and the Sustainability, Public Purpose, and DEI signature programs.

Read about last year’s travel programs in the 2023 Excellence Magazine.
