Are you fascinated by the way other cultures cook, communicate and conquer their day-to-day lives? Does the opportunity to live in another country among another society intrigue you? Are their epic sunsets, futuristic skyscrapers, ancient ruins and exotic animals that you yearn to see?
If any of these are true for you, then joining the MSMC study abroad program will change your life. The opportunity to immerse yourself in a diverse cultural setting will not only build your character but it’ll earn you credits toward your degree and highlight your resume with a unique quality. As Ingrid Morales, the study abroad advisor puts it, “It’s an investment in yourself.”
The MSMC Study abroad program has two faculty led trips set for Summer 2019. The credits that are available to earn during these two trips are math, history, English, business, criminology and art.
The first destination is the largest city in western Europe: London. You’ll have a chance to tour historical sites that include The Tower of London, the world renowned Westminster Abbey and the famous Globe Theater. This trip involves the course “Codes, Ciphers and Spies” instructed by Dr. Jennifer Bready, and the course “Eating the English Renaissance” taught by Dr. Rob Wakeman.
The second study abroad location is a country most known for its architecture and history: Greece. You will have the opportunity to explore ancient landmarks including the magnificent Acropolis and the Panathenaic Stadium. The two classes during this trip are Olympic Games, Ancient & Modern taught by Dr. Scott Russell and Archaeological Looting in Greece instructed by Dr. Kate Melody Burmon.
The information sessions for these two trips are being given on two dates: Tuesday, Sept. 25 from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in Aquinas Hall room 163 and on Wednesday, Oct. 17 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. outside of the View.
