CONCORDIA STUDENTS STUDYING ABROAD
Concordia College, Moorhead, Minn., has 74 students studying abroad on the May Seminars Abroad 2009 program and 71 students in the Summer School Abroad program.
Students are participating in six May Seminar programs in Europe and Australia and five summer programs in Norway, China, South Africa, Spain and Rwanda.
The May Seminar program offers a unique learning experience, as the world becomes the classroom. To prepare for this month-long experience overseas, students take prerequisite courses focusing on academic and travel issues related to their selected seminar. In addition to the academic portion of the trip, students learn to travel and interact in a different culture and with a wide variety of people. The popularity of May Seminars helps make Concordia a leader in the number of students who study abroad.
Summer School Abroad programs generally run four to six weeks.
Concordia College is a four-year liberal arts college of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America offering 78 majors, including 18 honors majors, and 12 preprofessional programs.
