Delve into the natural wonders of Scotland through field study

Explore the mountains and cultural past of Scotland for four weeks as you learn about the history and culture of this fascinating land both inside and outside the classroom. With up to two field studies and excursions a week to sites throughout Scotland, you’ll be living and breathing the make-up of this country. 

The program is based in Edinburgh, which itself is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and you will study through the Arcadia Edinburgh Center with the full support of our staff and faculty


Delving deeper into the cultural identity of Scotland lends a perspective imperceptible to the typical tourist. Scotland's national perception goes far beyond its tartan-clan bagpipers and ubiquitous castle ruins. ”
