      Historical Study Trips

Sometimes it's not enough to learn about history in the classroom. We strive to make history come alive by hosting regular Spring Break study trips that allow you to see and experience important historical sites for yourself while giving you a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience a foreign culture firsthand.

       Spring 2013 - History and Culture of Scotland:

Students spent a week visiting Scottish sites, including Inverness, Rosslyn Chapel, Balmoral Castle and Loch Ness, guided by an experienced tour manager and several LeTourneau faculty with historical knowledge of this beautiful country.

       Spring 2010 - Israel and the Conflict of Peoples:

Students explored the rich culture of biblical history while they grappled with the contemporary struggle between Jew and Arab in the modern state of Israel. Students focused on Israel since 1948 and were able to view battle sites in past Arab-Israeli conflicts as well as evaluate the impact of the Holocaust through visits to the Atlit holding camp and the Yad Vashem memorial.

       Spring 2009 - The Byzantine Empire:

This class traveled to Turkey to view sites related to their study of the Byzantine Empire from the time of Emperor Constantine in 313 A.D. to its fall to the Muslim Turks in 1453. Students spent time in Istanbul (formerly known as Constantinople) and traveled through a number of cities in western Turkey such as Bursa, Ephesus, and Izmir. They also examined the beliefs and impact of Eastern Christianity as well as the society and culture of Byzantium.
