Developing intercultural skills and global understanding for a lifetime of leadership

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 an 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, short-term faculty-led, and summer—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.
