International Field Study Courses
Imagine a course that lets you participate in a Model United Nations in New York. Picture yourself uncovering history at the archeological field school in Italy. Sound enticing? This is just the start. At Saint Mary’s, you have lots of opportunities to expand your education internationally through field study courses.
Participating in an international field study gives you the chance to immerse yourself in the place that you’re studying, adding an extra element to your practical experience. Not only will you gain valuable research skills and life experience, you’ll also learn to work in unfamiliar territory.
