See the world, for credit!

The idea of the International Studies Program was proposed as a unique way for Martin Methodist College students to experience other cultures and people.

Each student who participates in the Martin Methodist College ISP Program will receive Martin Methodist College credit based upon the program.

Students have a wide array of options to choose from including: learning a foreign language in France or Argentina, studying at Harlaxton in England, experiencing a semester in South Africa or Ireland or experiencing a summer in Madero, Mexico.

Participation is increasing each year and now more and more travel experiences are being added which provide attractive ways to earn college credit.

This International Studies program is a great way to spend a summer or semester! The value that an experience like this can provide will help you in finding a niche once you graduate Martin Methodist College.

How do I pay for this experience?

Each program has distinct costs and it is important to start planning early in your career at Martin Methodist College. You can receive outside Financial Aid only, which means Martin Methodist College Aid does not apply.  However, each student has their own unique aid situation based upon their FAFSA and it is important to understand the financial impact so you can start planning for the out-of-pocket costs.

How do I find out more information?

Each year the International Studies Committee hosts a series of events to get you acquainted with International Travel.  These events include: International Convocation, International Day in the Dining Hall, Informational sessions throughout the semester, and a booth at the activity fair.  These events provide you with an opportunity to learn more about each program.

Individual meetings can be set-up as well to discuss any of these programs in greater detail.  For questions contact George Cheatham, 931.424.2031, Director of International Studies at Martin Methodist College located in Martin Hall, 433 W. Madison Street, Pulaski, TN 38478.
