Global Education

Global Education

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.

Study Abroad

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.  

Spring Term

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. 

International Students and Scholars

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.
