Global Experiences in the School of Education

At Marymount University, we believe very strongly in developing students’ understanding of their place in the larger global community and of how the global context in which we live and work affects our day-to-day existence at the local level.  All of our departments have created innovative study-abroad programs in a variety of formats that allow students to explore the world, develop cultural awareness, learn more about themselves, and apply their course content in a very different environment.  Additionally, through the Center for Global Education, students can apply for study-abroad programs that are run through other institutions; the opportunities are endless!  Click here for more information about our global initiatives.

A Sample of our Offerings Abroad for Education
