WHERE THE CITIES ARE YOUR HOME
Imagine five weeks to learn and live in the heart of Europe, while you make four amazing cities your summertime neighborhood. As you learn to live like a local in London, Paris, Berlin and Prague, while having the most intense academic time of your life. You'll be staying in the center of each city. Making it easy to enjoy live theater, music festivals, nights out and incredible street food all around you.
THE STREETS ARE YOUR CLASSROOM
We call The Catalyst "Summer's Most Moving Classroom" because our classes are so immersive and active. Instead of lecture halls and slides, we'll ask you to walk over five miles most days. As our professors use our cities to bring your course material alive. From one amazing location to the next, each day of learning helps you really feel passion for discovery and growth, Our courses in Psychology, History, Art, Literature and Politics will challenge you to see your academic interests from a global point of view.
THE MUSEUMS ARE YOUR LABS
Every Catalyst day brings life-changing locations to life. So you feel what you're learning with all your senses. You'll take one course in London and Paris. And a second course in Berlin and Prague. Both will push you harder than you've ever been pushed before. Do you want to explore the hospital where the first PTSD soldiers were treated in 1916? Or walk over cobblestone streets that were bombed night after night in World War Two? Or stand right in front of the most powerful works of art ever created? On The Catalyst. these monumental experiences are your class days.
THE COMMUNITY IS YOUR WORLD
You don't join an adventure like The Catalyst to learn and live only with students who look like you. You join this journey to experience what it feels like to live and breathe comradeship with people who share your passion to live boldly and grow. The Catalyst community is built each summer to foster tolerance, resilience, creativity and empathy. Are you ready to meet the world this summer?
GET SET FOR AN AMAZING JOURNEY!
