This program is structured around a 12-day guided research trip on which students travel to small-town Australia from the ocean to the outback. While on the road, students will read and write as they travel and will gather a research portfolio for articles, essays, and creative pieces. Upon return to Sydney, class sessions and assignments will draw on students’ research gathered while on the road.
