Colonial/Revolutionary America Study Tour 

The Colonial/Revolutionary America study tour offers an opportunity for engaged learning through visitation to Colonial and Revolutionary era historical sites, museums, battlefields, and other organizations. The study tour will allow students to gain first person perspective into early American history by walking the ground where key events occurred, viewing and interpreting historical artifacts, and interacting with public history professionals to comprehend how this time period is presented to the general public. The tour features visitations to important historic sites in and around Boston, New York, and Philadelphia, including Minuteman National Historic Park (Lexington & Concord), Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum, The Freedom Trail, Bunker Hill Monument, Fraunces Tavern Museum, St. Paul's Chapel & Trinity Church, Federal Hall National Memorial, Washington Crossing Historic Park, Independence Hall, the Museum of the American Revolution, the National Constitution Center, and Valley Forge.  

The Colonial/Revolutionary Study Tour is offered during the spring semester (every other year), with the travel portion usually occurring during the second week of May. Prior to the tour, students will complete complete introductory assignments online and participate in two classroom sessions. The cost of the tour is typically $700-800 per person, which includes lodging, transportation to and from all sites via CoachUSA motor coach, admission to all sites, guided tours, and some meals.
