Mentored Advanced Projects (MAP)

In a Mentored Advanced Project (MAP), you’ll work closely with a faculty member on a research or creative project that integrates the knowledge and skills you’ve gained at Grinnell. Many MAPs result in papers, presentations, performances, and exhibits that share the results of the project regionally, nationally — even internationally. Nearly 40 percent of Grinnell students complete a MAP.

Off-Campus Study

Nearly 60 percent of Grinnell students spend a semester or year on a wide range of carefully selected offcampus study programs in the U.S. and abroad. Whatever your interests, you can broaden and deepen your education by using Grinnell as your portal to the world.
