To commemorate the 75th anniversary of the end of WWII and to celebrate our own 70th anniversary overseas, UMGC Europe is offering a special series of 1-credit field study courses throughout the year. Whether you’re interested in visiting battle sites, renowned museums, famous artwork, or historical monuments, get the most out of your travels with our 1-credit field study courses.
You will gain access to the online LEO classroom one week prior to the course start date. Once you gain access to the classroom, take a virtual walk-through of the course and begin reading assignments.
Access online LEO classroom; complete readings and all assignments
Students must arrange their own transportation to and from the location.
Course materials will be provided within the online (LEO) classroom. This course uses no-cost online resources.
You may register for the 1 credit field study course with your local program coordinator or online at MyUMGC. Tuition assistance or financial aid can be applied toward tuition costs. For more information, contact the UMGC Field Study Office at CIV +49-(0)631-534-800, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Before completing your travel plans, please verify with your local program coordinator or the Field Study Office at UMGC Europe Headquarters that the course will be held as scheduled. If you drop/withdraw from a field study course after the registration deadline, you will be charged a fee of $100.
A field study course packs all of the 48 contact-hours of other courses into adventure-filled days on location, so you can earn one to three credits at an accelerated pace. In addition, rather than taking place in an education center, a field study course takes place in a historical European city where the subject being studied has its roots. You will visit historical sites and museums as well as participate in lectures that bring it all together for a one-of-a-kind learning experience.
