Why Whitworth

The world is our campus

To serve and lead in an increasingly interdependent global community, Whitworth students must be able to navigate cultural, socioeconomic and linguistic differences with skill and understanding.

The best way to learn about other cultures is to engage them firsthand. Whitworth offers more than 30 faculty-led Jan Term and semester off-campus study programs throughout the world, as well as plentiful opportunities for independent study.

Explore the effects of technology on culture in India, or peace and conflict in Ireland. Study international business in Southeast Asia, or ecology and Latin American history at our Costa Rica Center. Experience the power and politics of art in Italy and Germany, or sharpen your athletic-training skills with specialists in Japan. Understand connections between poverty, altruism and hope in Tanzania, or learn to speak French in Paris. Or, fly solo as an exchange student at one of our 150 partner universities in Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia or the Americas.
