Welcome to Whitman Off-Campus Studies!
We believe that immersion into other cultures and academic viewpoints afforded by study abroad or study in a different US community is an invaluable component of undergraduate education—leading to significant academic and personal growth, development of intercultural communication skills, and a greater understanding of the range of professional and personal possibilities.
We encourage all Whitman students to take advantage of the broad range of off-campus study opportunities available through Whitman—semester, academic year, and summer options—as part of their undergraduate education. To that end, the college strives to reduce financial barriers by providing need-based aid and merit scholarships to eligible participants.
