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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information on semester abroad programs.
Central America Study and Service Program
You will have the opportunity to live, study, and serve in Central America alongside an intentional community of your Whitworth peers and faculty, as well as Central American teachers, community leaders, and families.
This academic study abroad program will differ significantly from anything you have ever experienced before.
The courses are designed to help you integrate all aspects of your experiences, relationships, reading, observation, ideas, insights and feelings as you live and learn in Central America. Whitworth’s educational principles seek the development of the whole person.
