Whitman College maintains a list of approved study abroad
programs – programs that have been reviewed by the College's
International Studies Planning Committee for approved for transfer
credit. Students attending approved study abroad programs are not
considered to be enrolled at Whitman while abroad and therefore are not
eligible to use Whitman need-based aid and merit scholarships while
attending these programs.
Further "approved" options include programs in Cameroon (Dschang and
Yaoundé), France (Aix-en-Provence, Besançon, Dijon, Montpellier, Paris,
Rennes, Strasbourg, Toulouse and Tours), Madagascar (Antananarivo, Fort
Dauphin), Mali (Bamako), Senegal (Dakar and Saint Louis), and
Switzerland (Geneva and Nyon).
More adventuresome students might explore further possibilities in other Francophone countries, like… Canada!
