Magellan Circle Excursions

Travel to Russia with the Magellan Circle

The UA College of Social and Behavioral Sciences Magellan Circle has organized a cultural exploration trip to Moscow and St. Petersburg for August 3-13, 2017.

The Magellan Circle is a society for donors who contribute $1,000 or more to the SBS Dean’s Fund for Excellence. One of the benefits of membership is gaining first access to unique excursions led by faculty members with expertise of the region. Magellan Circle members have taken many exciting and educational adventures, including to Cuba, Mexico, Italy, Israel, and the Galapagos Islands.

Leading this summer’s tour to Moscow and St. Petersburg is Pat Willerton, a professor in the School of Government and Public Policy. Margarita Kabakchy, an art historian and a professor of English Language and Literature from St. Petersburg University, will also be a study leader for the trip.

The group will experience highlights of Russia’s grand cultural capitals featuring artistic, historical and architectural treasures of the country’s glorious imperial past.

Willerton, who is a frequent visitor to Russia, said he is excited to participate in the tour. “The College and the University of Arizona Alumni Travel Office have crafted a stimulating and unique itinerary that includes places I have never before see on a tour; I still can’t believe we have the Arkhangelskoye Country Estate, outside Moscow on our itinerary!”
