Off Campus Studies(website)
Have you ever wanted to sketch on a beach in Australia, see a play at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon, or study conservation at a wildlife preserve in Tanzania? At Carleton, such dreams become a reality through more than 20 faculty-led off-campus study programs—and over 100 affiliated ones—in countries all over the world.
Carleton makes it easy to study abroad. Financial aid can be applied to any program, and there are no administrative fees or additional tuition charges—even for non-Carleton programs. As a result, most Carleton students (73% of the Class of 2012, for example) take advantage of this life-changing opportunity to stretch their wings, explore new cultures, and forge lifelong friendships.
Colin MacArthur '12 says:I've been on two Carleton off-campus study programs. I studied German in Berlin fall of sophomore year, and cross-cultural psychology in Prague fall of junior year. By far the most memorable experience was climbing a peak in the high Tatras of Slovakia with my psychology program compatriots. The views were spectacular and despite hiking for 6-8 hours straight, my fellows were extremely cheerful.
