Faculty-Led, Full-Semester Programs

At least two groups of Whitworth students each year travel abroad for a semester and study a set of related subjects with Whitworth faculty and native scholars. These "mini-colleges" abroad generally include 20-30 students and three or more professors over the course of the semester. The itinerary and content for the programs are customized depending on the faculty members who participate, so no two trips are alike. Students apply for the programs a year in advance and complete a semester-long preparatory course before going abroad.

Please contact Sue Jackson (sjackson@whitworth.edu) for more information on semester abroad programs.
