40 students studying away and abroad this summer
Forty Salve Regina students are participating in experiential and study abroad programs in six different countries this summer. The majority are taking part in three distinct programs offered by Salve Regina.
The largest group of 20 students is headed to County Donegal, Ireland with Dr. Laura O’Toole, Michelle Farnum and Dr. Debra Grosskurth. Students engage in the two-week Ireland program as the completion to one of two spring semester course offerings – either International Service Learning Clinical and Seminar for nursing majors or Mercy, Justice and the Sociological Imagination. While abroad, students in both courses will explore Irish culture and concepts of conflict resolution and build an understanding of the political, social and health consequences of conflict while visiting sites in Donegal, Derry, Belfast and Dublin.
Eight students are headed to Salve Regina’s newest summer offering – a six-week program in Verona, Italy in which students are able to take courses from a variety of majors as well as courses in Italian language and culture. Dr. James Mitchell is serving as a visiting professor to the host program and is teaching a course on intercultural communication to both Salve students and study abroad students from around the United States.
Six students are headed to Charleston, South Carolina for the month of July for Salve’s annual field school led by Dr. Jon Marcoux. This year, students will receive training in archeological excavation techniques while working at Drayton Hall, a world-renowned Colonial plantation site.
The remaining students are headed to China, England, South Korea, Spain, France and Italy on programs offered by a range of study abroad providers, language institutes and institutional partners.
