The Scotland Study Abroad program is a 4-week program based in Glasgow, Scotland. The program is co-sponsored by the College of Education and the School of Public and International Affairs (SPIA) however, it is open to all majors. This program will give you a “Scottish” experience while expanding your knowledge through comparative study of education and politics in an international context. It will broaden your understanding of how culture can impact policy using education and politics as the lens through which we examine the country and its people.

Three courses will be offered, in which students must choose at least two of the three: Education in Scotland & US, Comparative Study of Education Systems, and/or Exploring Socio-Cultural Perspectives on Diversity. During the trip, students will have a chance to visit the Scottish Parliament, interact with University of Strathclyde students and faculty, and spend four nights in Edinburgh and three nights in Fort William. There will also be other excursions to Stirling, Melrose Abbey, Abbotsford, Isle of Skye, and students can ride the Harry Potter Steam Train.
