Maryville encourages students in good standing to expand their perspectives about themselves and about the world, learn or perfect foreign language skills, make new friends and see places they have only heard about, by studying abroad for a summer, a semester, or a year. Study abroad can be the core for an international studies minor and can be a career-enhancing opportunity. With adequate planning, the experience can be integrated with the academic program in a way that the student can progress toward graduation. For more information contact the Global Education office at 314.529.9503.
Every spring and summer, there are travel experiences for students offered over spring break and in the summer months. These experiences are associated with a menu of five classes about the various cultural and historical experiences of the countries to be visited. Travel abroad tours are led by faculty from various schools within the university who teach the content associated with these tours. For information about spring travel abroad opportunities, please contact Dr. Jim Harf (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Most, but not all, financial aid programs are available for one full-time semester of study abroad. Federal and State Grant and Scholarship Programs are available for one full time semester of University approved study abroad course work. Student and parental loans may be used for two semesters. Institutionally funded aid may be used for 75% of the amount available for on-campus, full-time enrollment. Residential Hall awards, campus employment and Perkins Loans may NOT be used for study abroad programs. Students using financial aid for study abroad must sign a contract and agree to help educate the campus community about their study abroad experience.
