May Term

Mayterm Field Biology with Dr. JonesFor three weeks after the end of the spring semester, May Term at Mary Baldwin offers students the chance to take a concentrated course that meets every day. With a wide range of subjects from which to choose, these courses often include field trips or other excursions. Some include foreign study and off campus travel. Each of these courses gives a rare opportunity to focus on a subject in depth — and a not-so-rare opportunity at MBC to have fun and to venture off campus.
