Spring Break 2018 - Greek and Dutch Adventure

March 7-16, 2018

Our Spring Break Study Abroad Program is a nine-day study tour in another country. Class meetings are conducted on Tuesday nights before the trip. Since it is offered for college credit, readings, papers, and journals are required. It is available for non-credit participants, too.

Departure is Wednesday, March 7 with return on Friday, March 16. This trip is open to all MC students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community friends. Participants may select courses for college credit or participate as a non-credit enrollee.

Classes are offered in conjunction with the trip at the graduate and undergraduate level. Please contact Dr. Stapleton ( for specific class information. Enrollees may take no more than 4 hours. Those enrolled for credit must attend the class meeting at 6:00pm each Tuesday from January 23 to February 25 (Sunday) and complete all other requirements as designated by the instructor. Students should check with the professors first and then register as usual for the Spring class. You must be enrolled in a Spring Break class to qualify for the scholarship.

Non-credit enrollees are not required to attend any of the classes, but are strongly encouraged to do so because of the general travel/tourist information discussed and the meaningful background information about the history, culture and literature of the area provided.
