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.

Talk to a Study Abroad Peer Advisor!
Peer Advisors are a group of Wheaton students that have participated in a study abroad program and want to help the Center for Global Education advise, prepare, and inspire new students to explore options for study abroad for themselves. They are available to answer questions about choosing a study abroad location, course selection, and general travel tips. Check out their new blog, where they introduce themselves and share their stories!
