MMW Global Seminars

Global Seminar in Rome, Italy 

MMW offers summer programs abroad called Global Seminars, which we have taught on every continent except Antarctica.  Global Seminars offer enriching opportunities in a small learning environment, with each program with only 15 - 28 students. These are MMW faculty-led five-week long summer programs, combining two courses (8-units total), which fulfill MMW requirements (MMW14, 15, or 122 for transfer students), as well as other general education or graduation requirements.    

MMW has been offering programs abroad since 2008, when the UCSD Global Seminars began.  MMW programs have been taught in Australia, Cambodia, Chile, the Czech Republic, England, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Japan, Morocco, the Netherlands, New Zealand, South Africa, Spain, Thailand, Turkey, and Zambia.
