Study Away Evaluation

Oberlin College believes that all interested students, regardless of major, should have the opportunity to spend a semester away from campus on an academic program in a different part of the country or world. Study Away opportunities offered by Oberlin or affiliated with the college cover a wide range of geographic areas of the world, curricular or academic interests and program types. Over 300 Oberlin students each year participate in approved semester- or year-long study away programs.

In addition, Oberlin offers a variety of our own summer and winter term programs as well as the Danenberg Oberlin-in-London and Programa de Estudios Hispánicos en Córdoba (PRESHCO) programs.

Students interested in studying away for a semester or year can choose from Oberlin-sponsored programs, consortial programs, or over 85 affiliated programs. Information on these programs is available in the Study Away Library (Peters 205) or at this website under Choosing a Program.
