Off Campus Study
The academic standards and curricula of ACM Programs 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.
Two Grinnellians join sixteen students from other colleges to share their off-campus study experiences.
How does what you learn — in diverse cultures thousands of miles away — affect you and others once you return to Grinnell?
Grinnell-in-London currently offers up to fifteen slots for internships, up to three in the British parliament and up to twelve at-large. Because the number of students in our program who can serve as interns is regulated by the UK Border Agency, selection of students for internship slots is usually competitive. Selection is based on students' academic records, the viability of matching a student's interests with the kinds of internships available in London, and the suitability of a student's background for a proposed internship.
