What study abroad options are available to W&L students?
Students may study abroad for credit for a whole year, one term, during the summer, or with one of the W&L sponsored Spring Term Abroad programs. A minimum 2.5 cumulative GPA is required to study abroad, although select programs require a higher average.
What are Spring Term Abroad programs?
Each year 10-15 Spring Term courses involve travel and study abroad. Some courses are in a foreign language, but many are conducted in English and are arranged by departments in many disciplines. The costs for spring term courses are not included in W&L's annual comprehensive fee, and typically cost between $2500 and $6000. Need-based financial aid is available to students who qualify.
How do I decide where to study abroad and when?
Faculty can be a great source of information in specific areas of study. In addition, the study abroad advisors at the Center for International Education consult with every student who wishes to study abroad. The CIE contains a comprehensive library of materials about programs from all over the world and assists students throughout the entire process.
