Global and Experiential Learning

When you study abroad at Wheaton, you'll change perspective and not simply location, and gain understanding, not simply collect experiences.


Our Mission

To develop intercultural competencies that foster effective global citizenship and Christian witness through study and sustained, meaningful engagement with others in a manner that reflects the love, humility, empathy, and servanthood of Jesus Christ.

Initiatives advancing Global and Experiential Learning at Wheaton College:

Global Study Programs

Study in a U.S. or international cross-cultural context deepens and broadens a Wheaton education. Options include "Wheaton in" programs in Chicago and abroad, and partner programs in over 30 countries. In addition to the Human Needs and Global Resources program, several departments also offer opportunities for international internships. A competitive student Global Scholar Award is available for students who would like to undertake research or a creative project in an international or cross-cultural setting.
