Below are common options should you choose to study away from the Bethel campus, if not across an ocean. If you are interested in off-campus study in the United States, you should consult your major adviser or the registrar.
Washington Community Scholars’ Center (WCSC)
The Washington Community Scholars’ Center (WCSC) program provides students opportunities to explore city life, cultural diversity, career-building opportunities, a broad range of university classes and the connections between faith and work. WCSC brings students to Washington, D.C., to learn hands-on about vocations, urban social change, ethnicity, faith and personal growth. WCSC programs combine service internships with group living, university courses and seminar courses.
In the Urban Studies program, students can begin to understand the forces at work in shaping American cities by studying, living and working in Chicago. The Chicago Center for Urban Life and Culture provides a program of study that includes courses on urban life, arts and culture in Chicago and group dynamics. Up to 15 hours may be earned for a semester; three to four hours for a January interterm; six to nine hours for a two-month summer term.
National Institutes of Health
Students studying health sciences have an opportunity to arrange summer experiences at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md., working in the medical research labs and participating in the normal control program.
