Through Marymount’s 2012 Global Classroom Series, students in four springsemester classes traveled to overseas destinations during Spring Break as part of their coursework.
Global Business Experience – Doing Business in Latin America
(Panama City, Panama)
Business Administration major Filipe Ferro ’12 was among the students who traveled to Panama, one of the bestmanaged and fastest-growing economies in Latin America. Filipe’s class visited the Panama Canal, received briefings from U.S. Embassy staff, and even ran into actor Mel Gibson in a Panama City restaurant!
Topics in Art History – Van Eyck to Bruegel
Interior Design major Darrell Soho ’12 and his classmates went to Belgium to conduct field research. Darrell says, “We even visited labs where they analyze paint samples in order to restore old works of art. I definitely recommend this course.”
Mystery of the Church
Theodore Berry ’14, a Theology and Religious studies major, reports that this spring’s class trip to Rome was his first experience abroad. He recalls, “The opportunity to see the Vatican made the whole trip worthwhile. It was amazing.”
Religious Minorities in Contemporary France
Health Science major Erica Kicak- Vanderhoeven ’13 had visited the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC, but says that hearing a Holocaust survivor at the French Holocaust Museum in Paris was even more impressive. Erica adds, “We got slightly lost on the Paris Metro the first day, but figured it out quickly because we’re used to finding our way around on the DC Metro!”
