EF Tour SNHU Course Information


This course promotes and develops global awareness, perspectives, and connectedness to increase your overall global competence. It’s a perfect way to add value to your EF travel experience and complete a college-level course for credit. Throughout the course you’ll complete experiential activities that focus on asking and answering questions about (1) your own global awareness, (2) the parts of the world that you’re traveling to, and (3) the connections you have with our entire world. A unique course structure allows you to choose how you challenge yourself to learn and explore the cultures, geographies, and interconnectedness of the world. The course’s interdisciplinary structure lets you investigate topics related to business, education, government and political science, and many physical and social sciences. This specialized learning opportunity is only available to students traveling with EF Educational Tours or EF Explore America.  






You will be expected to…

  • complete tasks that require time and attention based on your travel experience
  • use independent learning skills to understand course tasks and demonstrate your learning
  • use what you learn and experience during your travel to expand your thinking about yourself and the world
  • participate in and complete this college-level course


Who Will Be My Instructor? You are going to participate in this class with SNHU-approved instructors who will challenge your thinking and help you succeed. Every instructor has a particular passion for teaching, learning, and global travel. You will also have the support of an Academic Mentor as you work towards a better understanding of yourself, the world, and how you’re connected to the world.


Do I Get College Credit? Yes, you will earn three college credits when you successfully complete the course, and may request an official transcript to submit these credits to another university or college. Because the receiving institution ultimately decides whether to accept the credits, we encourage you to talk about it with the school you want to transfer to. Generally, credit earned at SNHU is accepted by all universities and colleges, but there is no guarantee.
