Travel and Earn Credits, Next Stop Dublin, Florence, Heidelberg, and Normandy

Visit Dublin and Earn Credit

Explore the beautiful sights and rich history of Europe while earning university credit with UMUC.

Rather than taking place in an education center, a field study course takes place in a historical European city where the subject being studied has its roots. You will visit historical sites and museums as well as participate in lectures that bring it all together for a one-of-a-kind learning experience.

An unforgettable way to immerse yourself in a subject, a field study course packs all of the 48 contact-hours of a traditional course into seven adventure-filled days, so you can earn three credits in about one week, plus a component of online study.

How Does Field Study Work?

Each field study course may be taken for one or three upper-level undergraduate credits. Generally, students are required to complete assignments and a research project due a few weeks after the course has ended.

Tuition for a field study course is the same as a regular 1-credit or 3-credit course. In addition, UMUC offers a flat rate of $650, which covers seven nights in a hotel, admission to all museums and exhibits, and travel fees for excursions taken as part of the course. Other costs associated with field study courses (which will not be collected by UMUC) may include items such as transportation to and from the field study site, meals, and spending money.

HIST 318G D-Day and Normandy Campaign of 1944 has a flat rate of $250, which covers two nights in a hotel and round-trip bus transportation to Normandy from Ramstein.
