Program Description

Students participating in the Semester in Scotland program will spend four weeks in Edinburgh and four weeks in St. Andrews. The program is open to all majors. Classes are taught by JMU professors and also faculty members from the University of Edinburgh and University of St. Andrews, two of the best and most prestigious universities in the United Kingdom

This unique study abroad experience allows students to complete 13 credit hours towards their General Education requirements (four courses in four different clusters). If students have already taken one or more of the offered courses, then alternative credit can often be arranged. Experiential learning is a key component of each course. This means excursions and field-trips are an essential part of your coursework. So, be prepared to complete a geological survey in the pouring rain of the Highlands or even recite a poem by Williams Burn in a haunted vault below the streets of Edinburgh!
