Global Understanding

Do you want to be more than a tourist? Do you want to experience a different culture up close? Are you ready to rethink your most basic assumptions?

At Grinnell, you can pursue opportunities across the globe. For example, you can

  • study for a semester with our Grinnell-in-London program (or any of over 100 other pre-approved programs)
  • travel to Berlin for your art history class
  • conduct HIV research in South Africa
  • do biodiversity studies in China

Course-embedded travel is part of several classes, including Global Learning Program tutorials specifically for first-year students. You may also want to add a new language to your repertoire, or enhance your skills in one you already know. Or do a research internship abroad.

Whatever your interests and goals, Grinnell will help you enhance your skills and an active global perspective.
