The International Center is pleased to announce the development and implementation of the Maymester Global Classroom Series starting May 2016!
The Maymester Global Classroom Series is a cluster of academic course offerings that are facilitated through the International Center, in coordination with academic units, and designed as short-term, education abroad programs.
- The courses are taught outside of the United States and take place during the first three weeks of Summer Session, which includes the Summer Special Session and one week of Summer Session 1. Tentative dates for 2016 are May 15, 2016 – June 5, 2016.
- Each course will feature Norwich faculty teaching Norwich students for Norwich credit, meaning that students pay Norwich tuition and earn grades that will be included in their grade point average
- Students will take one course for three weeks for three credits
- The courses offered during Maymester will initially be “Special Topics” courses that intentionally incorporate and take full advantage of the location abroad (e.g., “The Chemistry of Foods in Spain”). The courses can meet General Education or major-specific requirements, with the series ideally including a mix.
- Faculty teaching courses as part of the Maymester Global Classroom Series will be paid in a manner consistent with the scale and process for a normal Summer Session course, and will also have all of their travel, accommodation, and other program-related expenses covered
While May 2016 may seem far away, the program proposal process starts now! Proposals for May 2016 programs are due to the International Center by March 31, 2015. You can find the proposal form here.
