The flexibility of the St. Mary’s curriculum allows students to study abroad on a short-term, a semester, or even a year-long program without compromising their St. Mary’s course credits. Not only do students have the opportunity to satisfy their ELAW (Link here) requirement but they are able to fulfill major, minor, and elective course requirements as well.
Over 50% of St. Mary’s students take advantage of the more than 25 SMCM study abroad program offerings at some point during their academic career. While it may seem challenging for some students to study abroad due to their major requirements, financial means, etc., St. Mary’s has strived to provide programs that will fit will even the most challenging fields, such as Biology and Chemistry, as well as offer as many scholarship opportunities as possible to make study abroad an accessible endeavor for as many St. Mary’s students as we can.
