More than 130 students will be studying in the Czech Republic, Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands, Germany, Indonesia, Italy, Kenya, Mexico, and Turkey during the winter break.
This is the 35th year in which Lafayette is offering concentrated, three-week, faculty-led courses during the January interim session between semesters. In many courses, students take part in hands-on field work and meet prominent business people, cultural figures, government officials, and academics, learning directly from these experts about the subject matter they are studying.
In May and June, students will explore England, Italy, Japan, South Korea, and the national parks of Western United States in similar faculty-led, concentrated courses.
The College also offers faculty-led semester abroad programs in Bremen, Germany; London, England; Madrid, Spain; and San Jose, Costa Rica. Students take classes from Lafayette faculty as well as those of host institutions. They also take part in field trips, which are planned and led by Lafayette professors with the help of local organizers. Previous faculty-led semesters have been in Athens, Greece; Brussels, Belgium; and Dijon, France.
Lafayette has affiliations with many colleges and other organizations through which students study in many countries. Students can participate in affiliated programs in Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bali, Chile, China, Costa Rica, Denmark, Ecuador, Egypt, England, France, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Mexico, Morocco, Namibia, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Panama, Russia, Scotland, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Tibet, Uganda, and Trinidad.
