Butler University’s Global Adventures in the Liberal Arts (GALA) program, in which professors accompany students on a semester-long trip, has been named one of the top study-abroad programs in the country by bestcollegereviews.org.

“This program is perfect for the student who does not want to settle in one place, but wants to experience several cultures,” the website said. “While traveling, the faculty member teaches one course, and then students are joined at different locations by other faculty, who teach other courses related to the locale. In addition to GALA, Butler University offers over 100 other study abroad programs.”

GALA was ranked ninth among “The 50 Best Study Abroad Programs in America.”

Monte Broaded, Butler’s Director of International Programs, said most of the courses offered during the GALA programs are designed to satisfy Butler core curriculum requirements that students would normally take in their second year.

“A course from Butler’s Global and Historical Studies program—such as Frontiers in Latin America, East Asian Interactions, Modernizing and Contemporary Europe, or Resistance and Reaction: Colonialism and Post-Colonialism in Africa—serves as an academic anchor for the GALA program,” he said.
