Study Abroad

Whether fulfilling your dreams or filling your résumé with valuable experiences, studying abroad is the opportunity of a lifetime.

Studying abroad provides a unique practical knowledge you can only get through immersion in another culture. It has far-reaching benefits for students of all majors as it opens your mind to political, social, cultural, and economic traditions different from your own. Washington College offers a variety of short-term faculty-led programs as well as semester and year-long programs, and The Global Education Office will help you find the best fit.

Faculty-Led Programs

During the three-week Kiplin Hall program, students attend lectures each morning and participate in field excursions in the afternoons. Students have an opportunity to explore areas where Wordsworth, Coleridge, Shelley, and other influential literary figures found so much inspiration. The Ernest A. Howard Professor of English Literature, Richard Gillin, serves as the program’s accompanying Washington College faculty director.

Kiplin Hall is just one of the many short-term faculty-led study abroad programs that Washington College faculty run during the summer and winter months. Open to all students, these programs offer a chance to study in places as diverse as Bermuda, China, Ecuador, Israel, Puerto Rico, and Tanzania.

Semester and Year-Long Programs

Study abroad has far-reaching benefits for students of all majors, expanding their world perspective as it opens their minds to political, social, cultural, and economic traditions different from their own.

Washington College offers semester and year-long programs all over the world. Most Washington College programs (20) are tuition-exchange programs and are offered in the following countries: Australia, Brazil, Denmark, Ecuador, England, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Peru, Spain, Turkey, and the United Kingdom.

But Wait, There’s More!

Students of modern languages can continue to immerse themselves in language suites. Students in the suites live with the language assistant, a native speaker of the language of the suite, and with other advanced students of their language of study. They eat, sleep, and dream in a foreign language.
