Historical Tours

The SMU Center for Presidential History partners with Essential History Expeditions to offer a unique opportunity for SMU Students and the Dallas community to join together for once-in-a-lifetime history adventures. Led by CPH Director Jeffrey A. Engel and Essential History Expeditions’ Brian DeToy, these intergenerational tours offer students an option to study abroad and earn three credit hours, and also giving alumni and friends of the CPH the opportunity to join in the exploration of places where history happened (and to relive a bit of college life!).

World War I History Tour: An American Journey through "The Great War"

Students, Alumni, & Friends

Just over 100 years ago, the guns fell silent and World War I ended. Still, the events of that era continue to shape and affect our world today. Four major monarchies and empires collapsed in history’s greatest shift in European and world power. The United States and the Soviet Union became major global players out of the ashes. The new map of the world created from the war continues to have significant impact on current events. Plus, we’ll have plenty of time to explore these iconic sites on your own and to reconnect with SMU friends and students in some of Europe’s most scenic locations.
