Ted Harakas Seminar in Europe Fund

Dr. Ted Harakas, BW professor of English, founded the Seminar in Europe Program in 1976 with Dr. Andrew Talton, BW professor of French. Since the program’s inception, hundreds of BW students have participated in this unique opportunity to experience the history of Europe and sites significant to the development of Western culture. Participants attend eight weeks of intense in-class preparation on campus with courses in the humanities, art, theatre and history, followed by six weeks of travel to five European countries. Co-directors Dr. Alex Nalbach and Dr. Marc Vincent hope that with financial assistance from this fund, more deserving BW students can take advantage of this exceptional experiential learning opportunity.
