St. Olaf College International and Off-Campus Study Office
Each year, more than 800 St. Olaf students study on off-campus programs. St. Olaf College offers academic programs in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, North, South and Central America and the Pacific. Some programs extend the scope of particular majors, language concentrations or area studies; all add a cross-cultural dimension to a liberal arts education.
St. Olaf off-campus opportunities are not limited to language students or specific major fields. Many programs, taught in English, provide significant opportunities for cross-cultural study and experience in all aspects of the general education program of the college.
Our programs’ academic standards and curricula are rooted in the liberal arts. They emphasize the interdisciplinary educational approach, intimacy of small classes, focus on independent research, and discussion-based learning that characterize liberal arts education at ACM colleges.
The programs accelerate and deepen students’ scholarly and personal growth through structured interactions between selected topics and distinctive locations. They offer educational experiences unlike those found in conventional classrooms.
