Administrative History

The Department of Travel Study (1951-2004) was an administrative unit at Brigham Young University.

The Department of Travel Study was created in 1951 to allow patrons to travel to different countries and parts of the United States in order to combine academic, spiritual, and intercultural goals in a unique way. The program was designed for anyone who wanted to participate, even those who were not full-time BYU students and for BYU students who who could not go on Study Abroad or to the Jerusalem Center for Near Eastern Studies. The Division of Continuing Education ended the Department of Travel Study in 2004 because of the precarious state of world travel and for financial reasons.
