Our study abroad options
Study abroad options offer a chance to study abroad while earning credit toward your MtA degree. They vary in length, including for an academic year, for a semester, and during summer months.
Study abroad options:
- 1) Exchange programs — study at one of our international partner institutions in another country, and pay tuition to Mount Allison.
- 2) Independent study abroad — study at an international university of your choice, and pay tuition directly to your host institution.
Field schools are short-term academic programs consisting of mentored field research — usually taking place during the summer and often abroad.
