GCC programs include 2 components: an on-campus course and an off-campus field experience. The field experience is a short extension of the on-campus course during which particular themes and topics introduced on campus are explored. To participate in the field experience, you must enroll in and complete the on-campus course.
These unique UM-faculty-led programs are a great way to maximize learning during a short-term study abroad experience. Preparation in the classroom before you go abroad makes it easy to hit the ground running with solid cultural context. And GCC programs allow for close-knit relationships between students and faculty. You get to know your team well throughout the semester leading up to the field component.
