Queen's expands international offerings with new programs
Queen’s and Blyth Educational Travel will begin offering unique study abroad programs to university students and lifelong learners from around the world this spring.
“Our aim is to provide an unmatched educational experience by combining exceptional instructors who are passionate about teaching with customized field studies in a supportive learning environment,” says Jim Lee, Associate Dean (International), Faculty of Arts and Science, and Academic Director of the Queen’s-Blyth International Studies Program.
The Queen’s-Blyth Worldwide program for university students and the Lifelong Learning program for adult learners will be held in France, Italy, Spain, Greece, Costa Rica, and Australia and New Zealand in 2012. Participants can take Queen’s credit courses in a variety of subjects, including biology, history, geography, language and more.
“We are delighted to work with Queen’s in offering these outstanding courses. Blyth has been offering accredited courses abroad since 1977 and have seen first-hand the transformative impact of these experiences,” says Sam Blyth, Chair, Blyth Academy.
Students from any university can study abroad through the Queen’s-Blyth Worldwide program. Participants will travel in their group and instructors will incorporate the historical and cultural aspects of each destination.
The Lifelong Learning program allows adult learners to take Queen’s credit courses overseas. The learning experience will be enhanced by specialized itineraries, instructors who travel with the participants, and accommodations that provide easy access to many local sites.
All sessions run for three weeks and are offered in May and June 2012. Participants can depart from Montreal, Toronto or Vancouver.
