Welcome to Scotland!

Welcome to the General Education Summer Semester in Scotland Program! This exciting program is open to all majors and takes students on the journey of a lifetime! Four General Education courses (13 credit hours) are offered, with JMU faculty and professors from the University of Edinburgh and the University of St Andrews teaching the classes. The two Scottish universities are among the best and most prestigious universities in the United Kingdom of Great Britain. This summer program has a strong experiential learning format that allows students to apply their learning by engaging with their new surroundings. There are numerous field trips (excursions) to various historical, cultural, and geological locations in beautiful Scotland, and these are included in the program’s fees.
