Interdisciplinary Travel Study
On alternate years SAMC offers an interdisciplinary travel study course to London and Paris. Students are encouraged to think critically and reflectively about the divinely endowed gifts of human creativity as expressed in the visual arts, theatre, dance and music. Onsite lectures/discussions, visits to art galleries and museums, and attendance at a number of concerts and plays challenge students to develop and deepen their biblically informed aesthetic and explore the role of the arts in both illuminating and enriching their lives.
