Each year, Grinnell students are accepted into a wide range of off-campus study programs both abroad and elsewhere in the United States. They study abroad throughout the world: Asia, Australia, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and various locations in the U.S. Participation is open to all qualified students and possibilities for study exist in virtually all subject areas.
Off-Campus Study is an opportunity to broaden your liberal arts education and enhance your major, concentration or other areas of academic interest. Grinnell recognizes that living and studying in a new and challenging environment is a valuable learning experience. It is an experience which will be enriched by being closely integrated with your coursework on campus. Great emphasis is placed on selecting an appropriate program compatible with your academic goals. Working with your academic advisers and the OCS Office, you will find a program that complements and enhances your Grinnell education.
