classroom lectures with the first-hand experience of travel and
living in other countries. Oglethorpe provides a framework and

Oglethorpe University Students Abroad sponsors and
directs not only our traditional student exchange component, but
also creates and manages highly popular short-term trips during the
semester breaks and the summers.
Our program offers trips to destinations like Italy, Greece,
Spain, England, France, Germany, Asia, and Central and South
America. The trips are usually announced months in advance of
departure, and each trip can be taken for academic credit. The
professor guiding the trip determines the course content, and the
students upon return to Oglethorpe work independently on a project
and paper under the professor's supervision.
Students travel with their fellow students and friends, stay in
excellent hotels, tour archaeological sites, museums, and monuments
in every city visited. In addition, students will also have the
opportunity to attend plays, musicals, and special events while
These well-planned, insightful trips offer unique opportunities
for students who desire to see the world and experience it directly,
earn credit while doing so, gain an introduction to the language,
food, and customs of other cultures, and invest in their own
intellectual and aesthetic development.
Students who qualify can also use financial aid for these trips. Any student awarded a stipend or scholarship through Oglethorpe Admissions MUST take for credit and pay the tuition for the course associated with that trip.
