International Field Study
The intensive 10-day Study Abroad component of MCNY’s Emergency and Disaster Management MPA program is an action-oriented immersive experience—included with program tuition. Designed to ensure that students have the opportunity to work collaboratively in a pan-cultural environment and learn from their international peers. During past study abroad trips, MCNY students have traveled to Turkey, Chile, Spain, and other countries.
The field study portion of the program sometimes requires students to attend classes, meetings, or take conference calls during non-class hours. It might also require that presentations are given to executives and professionals and students should be appropriately prepared for such. All scheduling is dependent upon the agency or organization that the class is working with and what their class project entails.
At the trip’s conclusion, you’ll prepare a summary as well as comprehensive written report. Work from the trip also is included in your final Constructive Action project.
