Education Abroad Opportunities
The Maryville College Education Abroad program gives students the opportunity to participate on a life-changing experience. Our programs offer students the opportunity to:
- Live and learn alongside locals
- Build real connections and gain a true understanding of what it is like to live in another culture
- Be part of an international community of over 300 institutions that work together to provide students with education abroad experiences
- Have access to affordable, high quality programs
- Earn academic credit in all fields of study for time spent in another country.
Students can study abroad on a travel study program with MC faculty and students, or can stay for a few weeks during the summer and take classes on a specific topic or another language. Students can spend a semester or year taking classes one wouldn't normally get a chance to take. Education abroad is an amazing opportunity to become intimately engaged in another culture by living it every day, and to also reflect on one's own values and ideas.
