Just think: You could spend an entire semester in Jordan, or a Spring Break in Panama, or a few summer weeks in China, Italy, or Australia. And it would all be for academic credit!
Marymount students who study abroad consistently say that it was one of the best experiences of their lives.
Victor Betancourt, director of the University’s Center for Global Education, says, “These students also gain a skill that’s highly valued by employers and graduate schools: the ability to consider issues from various perspectives and to function well in an international setting. These are keys to success in an increasingly global workplace.”
Here’s a sampling of study-abroad opportunities available to MU undergraduates this academic year:
Three weeks in Kenya this summer at a chimpanzee sanctuary, serving as a research assistant to a Psychology professor; a paired Sociology course focuses on doing community outreach in area villages.
More than 30 semester-long programs, something for every major.
Four spring semester courses – in Belgium, France, Italy, and Panama – with a study-abroad component during Spring Break.
