Most students participate in an experience abroad during their W&L experience. This may be for a term or full-year, Spring Term, summer program, internship, research, or service. Advisers work with you to find programs tailored to your interests.
We educate students to be participants in a global and diverse society by engaging students through coursework, speaker series and cultural programs, and a vibrant and extensive study abroad program.
Students get an up-close, intensive and personal experience abroad, studying a single subject on-site during W&L’s four-week Spring Term. While there are opportunities for students to travel abroad throughout the year, Spring Term is an additional option for students whose schedules can’t accommodate a full semester or year abroad.
W&L is home to international students and scholars from more than fifty countries of citizenship and hosts dozens of globally themed events annually. International students and scholars are dynamic members of the community and enrich W&L’s mission to prepare graduates to thrive in a global and diverse society.
International EducationWe encourage you to contact us with questions about an international education at W&L.
“ For students to be truly well-rounded, which is the purpose of a liberal arts education, it is essential to have a solid understanding of the history of and problems faced by people from cultures other than their own.”
