Study Abroad

We know that when students experience other cultures,doors to self-realization open to an understanding of what it means to be a global citizen.

The International Office supports this commitment by helping students to study abroad, whether it is for a single semester, a summer term, or a full year. IWU students have the opportunity to study in hundreds of locations in almost every region of the world.



Undergraduate Research

Our students have the opportunity to do original research at the undergraduate level, collaborating with faculty who are at the top of their fields.

Because Illinois Wesleyan is an entirely undergraduate institution, students are offered research and creative opportunities without competition from graduate students. Check out some of the work that has resulted from faculty mentorship of students in the IWU Digital Commons.
