I chose to study abroad in Seoul because South Korea is extra special to me. I am a South Korean adoptee and came to the States when I was 3 months old. I never knew much about my culture, growing up in areas where the Asian population was less than 2% did not allow me to learn or experience my culture very much.
Studying abroad while at Washington College has far-reaching benefits for students, regardless of their programs of study. It expands world perspectives as it opens minds to different political, social, cultural, and economic traditions.
Do It Your Way, Anywhere
One of the goals of the Global Education Office (GEO) is to foster an intercultural education experience for both current WC students who want to study abroad and incoming international students. Washington College has a broad range of partner institutions all over the world, and all WC students can start studying abroad as early as their second-semester sophomore year!
