Off-campus programs allow students such as you with the chance to enhance their academic experiences through engaging in independent study, service, and personal development opportunities.

Why spend time Off-Campus?
By leaving the shelter of familiar circumstances, students broaden their intellectual horizons and develop greater self-reliance. With an understanding of other cultures, students become dramatically more aware of the need to search for shared solutions to the problems confronting humankind.
Our students will enter and lead a world filled with complicated predicaments related to the environment, economy, food and energy resources, health, and ideological conflict. There is no better preparation to address these issues within a global community than a liberal arts degree from DePauw.
