Global Classroom Series

Global Classroom Series

Global Classroom Series (GCS) courses are three-credit semester-long classes taught at Marymount throughout the entire semester, which include an international field experience of one week to ten days. This unique type of experience allows students to learn about the course material in the classroom and then apply that knowledge in an international setting. The group activities are designed to complement and expand upon the course content. Since 2011, hundreds of Marymount students have participated in affordable and convenient GCS programs all over the world to explore their coursework from a global perspective.
