Program 1

Senior Thesis Tour

The Westcoast Educational Philosophy extends beyond classroom instruction into vital Travel-and-See Experiences. The founder and faculty discovered that "live" experiences at museums, galleries, monuments, historical sites, and national parks write indelibly upon the ""action discs"" of even the most casual learner. Westcoast students, who take advantage of opportunities to travel, sharpen their minds, and come closer to people and history. Exposure to the splendor of architecture and the magnetic genius of DaVinci, Michelangelo and Raphael, to the natural habitat of the rhinoceros, the elephant and the cheetah, has made them "citizens of the world".
