St. Edward's University Students Study Abroad in Edinburgh, Scotland
Each summer, students enjoy a faculty-led study abroad program and travel to Edinburgh, Scotland with faculty member Innes Mitchell, associate professor of Communication, and take signature courses at St. Edward’s University’s partner school, Queen Margaret University. In 2010, 10 students saw and helped produce seven festivals. The students resided in well-appointed student apartments, attended classes and participated in diverse cultural excursions.
While in Scotland, students experienced the World Heritage City, created a new network, engaged in global change, made memories to last a lifetime and were transformed as part of the I-FEST program.
A partnership between Queen Margaret and St. Edward’s University began in 2009 when 15 students from St.Edward’s participated in a pioneering global experience with Queen Margaret. The International Festival Experience Summer tour, or I-FEST, provided an opportunity for students to study theater and event planning.
The I-FEST program was created by Joe Goldblatt, PhD, executive director of the International Centre for the Study of Planned Events, Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh Scotland; and Sheila Gordon, Assistant Professor of Theater in the School of Humanities.
