Learn world history by seeing it for yourself! Study abroad for the summer, a semester or the year in countries all around the world as part of one of Tennessee Wesleyan's international programs.
The Study Abroad Program allows Tennessee Wesleyan College students to study and learn in other countries. Each program is coordinated through TWC, so your credits may count toward graduation and you can take your financial assistance with you if you study abroad during the school year.
Study Abroad Opportunities
Faculty-led study abroad tours are available each summer through various departments, including religion and philosophy, english and foreign languages, and fine arts. Previous destinations include Italy, Ireland, North Wales, Paris and London. Alternative fall and spring break trips are also available to students who wish to travel and participate in mission work.
For more information on TWC mission trips and programs, contact Reverend Dr. Chris Dover by phone at 423-252-1110 or by email at email@example.com.
For students who wish to continue their Spanish studies in a Spanish-speaking country, Tennessee Wesleyan College is an affiliate of The Center for Cross-Cultural Studies, which has sites for students to study in Córdoba, Argentina, as well as in Seville and Alicante, Spain. Semester programs and summer programs are available. Satisfactory work in courses taken in any of the programs offered by CC-CS will be accepted for transfer as part of the requirements for completing a degree at Tennessee Wesleyan College.
Students may use financial aid for which they are eligible to help pay the costs of the program. This program facilitates cultural integration, service-learning opportunities, and internships; for more advanced students, courses may be taken at Argentine or Spanish universities with whom the CC-CS partners. Interested students should explore the program options and talk with Elizabeth Ruleman about this opportunity. More information can be found online at SpanishStudies.org.
Upcoming Study Abroad Trips
May 2013 - Rome & Greece
Ever dreamed about seeing the Roman coliseum, throwing a coin into the Trevi fountain or seeing the Sistine Chapel with your own eyes? Ever wanted to visit the ancient ruins of Pompeii or to look out over Naples bay from the top of Mt. Vesuvius? Ever wished you could walk the same streets that St. Paul walked when preaching to the Athenians, or sitting in the amphitheater in Ephesus where he spoke to the citizens? Ever had a cruise to the Greek islands of Mykonos, Patmos or Santorini on your ‘bucket list’ of places to visit?
Well, here’s your opportunity! Chris Dover, TWC chaplain, is planning a 13-day tour of all of these places (and more!) May 15 – 27, 2013.
