Programs & Locations

Please choose your study away program from those listed below. These programs have been previously approved for credit within the liberal arts and continue to be recommended by Williams academic departments. We keep our knowledge of programs current through student evaluations and ongoing site visits. Programs may be added or removed from this list at the office’s discretion.

Follow the links below to the program websites to research available offerings and see whether the program is suited to your specific strengths and academic needs. The list can be sorted by program and location columns. You should work closely with the faculty in the department of your intended major if you are seeking credit for any of your study away courses.

You are required to attend a Group Advising Session prior to requesting a signature on a program approval form and prior to confirming participation with your program of choice.

Having trouble deciding on a program? It can be overwhelming! Try using our ‘choosing a program‘ handout to help narrow down your choices!

No Business program tracks, pre-professional programs or Open Campus programs will be approved.
