BEAVER FALLS, Pa., March 6, 2017 – The deadline to register for Semester in Scotland in the fall is March 17. The semester of a lifetime awaits in Scotland where students interact with another culture and draw closer to God as well as neighbor. Whether traveling around Europe, reading course material, listening to seminars, attending church or participating in extracurricular activities, students will encounter life-changing experiences while earning 16 college credits. There is no better way to study than in the crisp autumn air on a Scottish hill in blazing colors.
The fall 2017 program features courses on Bible, Ministry and Humanities, ranging from topics such as Scottish Christian History to Evangelism. Three courses are required and three are electives, resulting in a total of six courses taken throughout the semester. In addition to regular classes, students grow by attending Bible Classes, Prayer Meetings, Worship and Mutual Encouragement Times (METs). Through these outreaches, students focus their hearts and minds on the Lord and encourage one another in the faith. In addition, students connect with the community by helping at the Covenant Kids Club, spending time with the Covenanter Youth and serving others through various community outreaches.
Through the hustle and bustle of college life, there is also time set aside to explore the beautiful Scottish countryside. Every Wednesday afternoon, an individual from Airdrie RP church takes students to visit some of Scotland’s famous historical, scenic and cultural sites. Also, during one week, trips are taken to Scottish Reformation sites. In addition, students have numerous opportunities to travel around Europe at low-cost.
Recollecting her experiences in Scotland, Mary McCurdy says, “As I look back on these past four months, I see memories that I hope will remain with me. This is an experience that I would not give up for anything, and I am extremely glad that I took it.”
With the exception of airfare, all costs are covered by the semester fees paid to Geneva College. However, a £150 pound reimbursement for the plane ticket will be given upon arrival as well as a monthly stipend of £175 pounds. Housed in a fully-equipped and furnished flat/house, students will be within walking distance from the Airdrie RP Church and the Airdrie town centre.
