Honors Program

Global Studies Opportunities

Anna Maria College is committed to engaging its honors students in the study of challenges that affect everyone in the 21st century. As employers increasingly want students with global experience, the Honors program is dedicated to making sure students are prepared for these expectations. Each honors student is required once in her/his four-years at Anna Maria College to engage directly in global studies through interesting programs.

  • A course that requires a week-long trip to a foreign culture as part of its learning experience.
  • A self-designed study abroad experience that incorporates a credit bearing requirement.
  • A more traditional semester or summer abroad experience.

Global Studies Experience Testimonials:

"Traveling to another completely foreign place opened my eyes wide to the idea that there were other cultures that were completely different from my own. I was stunned by the differences between American and Peruvian culture. I was amazed by how well people lived with what little they had...."

"The classes that I took at Cambridge University were superb.... Overall, my study abroad experience was one of the highlights of my time at Anna Maria. Without a study abroad requirement being a part of Anna Maria's Honors Program, I would have missed out on the opportunity of a lifetime."

"There have been only a few times in my life that I felt with certainty that I was in exactly the right place at the right time.... When all fourteen [Honors] students, along with a handful of professors, greeted each other for the first time, I found myself in the most mature, intellectually stimulating, relaxed and friendly group I had met in my life."

"An Anna Maria class cannot teach a student about being a part of the world as a whole, about how other people live, work and thrive. It's difficult to articulate what specifically changed about me while there, but upon coming home, I knew that I had learned more in a semester that I had ever learned before."
