A critical component of any education, particularly an honors education, is an interdisciplinary curriculum that enriches the college experience. At South Dakota State University (SDSU), the Fishback Honors College strives to provide a robust and holistic educational experience through innovative honors courses paired with enriching co-curricular programs. One way to meet these goals is an honors study abroad experience included as part of the Fishback Honors College curriculum. The study abroad course is an integral part the honors curriculum, fulfilling the requirement of an interdisciplinary colloquium course and thus making it accessible to students from every field of study. Several articles and forums have discussed themes and outcomes that are both desirable and valuable in an honors study abroad experience. Even with this research, a need persists to fill existing knowledge gaps about honors study abroad through tangible research and exploration. This study engaged honors students at South Dakota State University in determining their desired outcomes, perceived barriers, and overall expectations for an honors study abroad program.
