This is a wonderful travel-study opportunity available for BYU-Idaho students. The semester it will be offered is yet to be determined. The tour will allow students to study Humanities in historically significant Istanbul, to become better world citizens in great cradles of two world religions, to discuss philosophy of religion while marveling at the Parthenon in Athens, and ponder the teachings of Paul where he delivered them in Ephesus and Corinth. For a total of 21 days the walls of the classroom peel away and the classroom becomes great sites in Turkey and Greece:
