Cultural Program in the American West

English Language Center Presents: English and Culture of Cowboy Country

Laramie is in the heart of Cowboy Country, and summer is the perfect time to enjoy our mildest weather while exploring the land and culture of the American outback. Morning English language classes  focus on conversation practice, new vocabulary, and American idioms. Afternoon activities can include mountain hiking, field trips to historic landmarks like the Wyoming Territorial Museum. Day trips can include visits to rodeo, summer festivals and street markets in Laramie and nearby towns. Participants stay on campus in University of Wyoming residence halls and enjoy breakfast and many meals with campus dining.
These 2-week Study Tours can be customized for school groups. Study tours do not require a student visa and add-on options can include Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, and the Mount Rushmore areas. Tell us about your group by filling out an interest survey below, or contact Shawn Bunning at ShawnB@uwyo.edu.
