The study abroad programs offered by Wheaton College have been carefully vetted for academic rigor and student support. They are programs to which we have sent students for many years with positive feedback. They are in locations in which Wheaton faculty or staff have professional contacts and in some instances they have visited. Each of the study abroad programs on our approved list offers high-quality courses in a variety of fields, including some specialized curricula in visual arts, environmental sciences, religion, education and the languages. Study abroad participants often have the opportunity to study with international experts, take courses not available to them at Wheaton, pursue more independent intellectual endeavors, and/or gain professional work experience. Studying abroad also provides students the opportunity to fully engage with another culture exposing them to different perspectives and encouraging self-reflection.
Petitioning unapproved programs
If you are considering a program not on our approved list, you must make an appointment to meet with the Dean of the Center as soon as possible, where you will receive information about the petition process.
