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. Fall semester GCS courses have their field experience over winter break, whereas spring semester courses go abroad over spring break. The students travel as a group and are led by the course instructor and an additional Marymount staff member.

This unique type of experience allows students to learn about the course and subject material in the classroom and then apply that knowledge in an international setting. The activities and excursions 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.

NOTE: Students must apply and be accepted to the GCS programs and the CGE will take care of registering accepted students for the course. Students participating in these programs MUST be enrolled in the course for the entire semester to attend the international experience.
