  • Graduate students have the opportunity to add a global perspective to their graduate degree by substituting one pre-approved course in their program for a Global Study Travel Seminar. Travel Seminars are multi-disciplinary 6-12 day travel courses led by CSP faculty. We encourage students from a diverse set of programs to travel and learn together. Past travel seminar examples:

    • Ireland – interactions with government agencies and local NGO’s serving families, visit a graduate program in Family Studies at the University of Galway, meet with corporate directors and tour Medtronic Corporation facilities in Galway
    • Chile – visits to businesses, governmental, and cultural sites including Chilean vineyards, Polaris Industries, and Andes mountains
    • Italy – tour of Modena (sister city of St. Paul), visit to the Montessori Center, study Reggio-Emilia pedagogical approach, a tour and tasting of both a cheese factory and a vineyard
