Travel Study Courses/Summer Programs

Short term travel opportunities are available through summer programs sponsored by some of FMU’s exchange partners and through travel-study courses arranged by FMU faculty.

 

TRAVEL STUDY COURSES are short excursions, sometimes a week or two, offered in conjunction with FMU courses, or occasionally constitute entire three-hour courses themselves. Recent examples include fine arts students observing the Dia de Los Difuntos festival in Ecuador, student nurses touring medical facilities in Belize, and (almost every summer) amateur biologists living for a few weeks at FMU’s Wildsumaco Biological Station in Ecuador.

Application for a travel-study course requires your first enrolling in and paying for the course. Thereafter, you will be responsible for completing a few forms pertaining to your health, insurance coverage and liability before being allowed to participate.

Travel, Housing and Meals are arranged by faculty sponsoring the courses. For more information consult your department chairs or contact the International Studies Coordinator.
