Embarking on the Adventure of a Lifetime

Williams College encourages you to think about the option of study away as you begin the process of considering major fields and course requirements during your sophomore year.

Whether you’re thinking of spending a semester or a year abroad, there are a number of questions and concerns you’ll need to address. This website has been specifically designed to answer these questions (and some you haven’t thought of yet).

Study away not only provides you the chance to master another language, learn about another culture, and to engage in an internship or research away while earning credit toward the Williams degree, but it offers the possibility of profound personal change and real adventure.

Best wishes,
