Current students: Bethel’s annual Fall Study Abroad Fair will be held on Monday, September 17th, 11am-2pm, in the Brushaber Commons Atrium (outside the Student Life office). This is a good way to check out a number of the many study abroad options that Bethel offers, including fourteen partner programs from around the world, some of the semester-long terms run by Bethel academic departments (e.g., Communications Studies, English, and Business all offer semesters in Europe), and a selection of our J-term trips.
For more information about study abroad, go to the Off-Campus Programs/International Studies page on Bethel’s website. You’ll find information about applications and policies, a FAQ, and lists of current semester and J-term programs.
Our department has an increasingly strong track record of students and faculty being involved in off-campus study. To get a taste of how Bethel History folk participate in international studies, check out:
- The World War I trip that our own Chris Gehrz will be leading in January 2013 — as of now, there is only one spot left, and the application deadline is Sept. 17th, so don’t delay! (Applications available from the Off-Campus Studies office in CC320A.)
- Interviews on this blog with current students and a recent graduate who spent semesters in Scotland, the Czech Republic, and Ghana
- These photos taken by former History and Social Studies Education students while they were studying abroad
- And this 2011 video featuring three History alumni reflecting on their semesters off-campus
