Experience the World
At Houghton, more than half our students experience the world through off campus study.
For students, this is far more than an excursion. It’s a way to take what you’re learning – political science, intercultural studies, theology, business, medicine – and apply it in a new context.
Plenty of colleges have off-campus trips. Our programs are built into your curriculum so that you not only graduate on schedule, but return to campus with a new sense of purpose and an ignited imagination.
Before Houghton, I had never really considered a life outside of the States! I simply wanted to have an interesting study abroad experience. However, through the Houghton in Tanzania semester I had a significant broadening of my worldview, which has shaped not just my career choices but who I am.
