Chart Your Own Course
While New York City can spoil you with its international cachet, there are other great world cities to immerse yourself in. MMC offers a number of study abroad programs that transport you beyond the five boroughs of NYC. Does Paris entice you? What about London? Perhaps Greece or Italy? Choose your location and open yourself to cultural discovery and global perspectives.
I loved the self-designed courses of the IDS major since this is one’s opportunity to learn outside of classroom walls. I created a course that explored turtle conservation efforts in Costa Rica, where I traveled to work hands-on with turtle-nest relocation and data gathering. I have to say that experiencing the issues is very different than reading about it in a book. I believe it is of greater impact, and is also very beneficial, helping you to grow as a person.Alexis Van Dijk ’14
