Students Consult with Maryland Social Entrepreneur Corps

Drawn from a variety of backgrounds, each MSEC student has the opportunity to apply what they’ve learned in the classroom to understand, educate and develop solutions to social problems in their host countries. Each student begins the nine-credit program with classes in the spring, learning the key skills and context for their travels and work ahead. After that, they’re off to spend two months abroad over the summer on their projects, working closely with each other and the local communities. When they return in the fall, they must complete a follow-up course to reflect and learn from the valuable insights they took away from this unique experience.
