Study Tours

The McCarthy Center believes in the importance of experiential learning as a way to engage students in the many layers of the policy making process. Study tours bring students face-to-face with key players and organizations working on current policy issues like green urban planning, immigration, and rural development. If you have an idea for a future study tour (especially something local), please contact Stacy Penk at spenk@csbsju.edu with your idea.


 From Prohibition to Minnesota's


Dr. Matt Lindstrom, Professor of Political Science, and Bob Bell, Assistant Professor of Accounting and Finance, led a study group to New York City from October 4-8. The learning goals were:

  • To increase awareness of media coverage of politics, Wall Street, and other current events, through on-set live broadcasts of radio and TV shows, and by meetings with CSB/SJU alums and others in the radio and TV industries
  • To better understand financial institutions impacting U.S. and global monetary policy, both in the public and private sectors
  • To gather unique lessons about the city of New York, its culture and geography
