Boldly Baldwin word mark

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.
