Global Education Photo Contest

In Field Studies/Study Abroad/Global Ed, we are fond of saying, “Make the world your classroom!” Each year we do just that, sending hundreds of students around the world on amazing academic adventures. Here are some of our favorite images taken on Field Studies/Study Abroad programs in recent years. Trust that we are busy planning future courses/trips to extraordinary locations that we shall visit with renewed vigor and perhaps a deeper appreciation of our ability to travel the world. 

Photo Contest Winners

Previous Photo Contest Winner: The Faroe Islands: Hike Europe’s Best Kept Secret - Gasadalur and Múlafossur, Faroe Islands

"There are few places on our planet left unexplored by commercial tourism. The small Faroe Islands, a small archipelago of islands located between Norway and Iceland, are an exception. Only about 100,000 visitors make it to these islands annually. There is little automobile traffic and few people on the diverse network of trails on the 18 small islands. This picture captures the Múlafosser waterfall plunging into the North Atlantic Ocean."
