The process for enrolling in an embedded course varies according to the instructor and/or department. The program leader has indicated that in order to enroll in the course and travel component, students must meet with course faculty after completing an initial Application of Interest. This interview includes basic questions about travel experience, interest in course content, and questions about the program. We also cover the program itinerary and trip inclusions to facilitate informed interest. This interview does not really determine if someone is "accepted" into the course but does provide both parties (faculty and student) the opportunity to better understand the personalities and expectations of the experience.
