Study Abroad

Study abroad programs are becoming increasingly popular for our students. The Study-Abroad Faculty Coordinator, Dr. Melanie Gregg, works closely with students who want a global experience. Some Wilson faculty take groups of students to other countries for classes and exchange activities.

Wilson College has partnership exchange programs with Ewha and Seoul Women's universities in Korea; Effat College in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia; and the Business Education Initiative (BEI) with colleges in Northern Ireland. Students may also participate in the many study-abroad programs during a semester, summer or the year through a partnership with Cultural Experiences Abroad (CEA).

Wilson students have arrange to study in South Africa as part of the Vets in the Wild, London School of Economics, Seoul Korea, Chile and Provence France. Wilson faculty arrange classes in marine biology in Jamaica.

Wilson students may also participate in the Washington Semester consortium program, which includes an internship and coursework in Washington, D.C. Students have special housing and are eligible for scholarships for this program.
