Coe Programs

Guided by Coe faculty members, these full-term programs, both domestic and abroad, are designed for students to complete an internship or research project while experiencing the culture.

These programs are economical, and applications are due later than for other off-campus programs.

Asia Term

Guided by a Coe faculty member, Asia Term is a chance to engage with Buddhist monks, market sellers and students in Southeast Asia. The application deadline is middle of fall term.

New York Term

Spring term in New York means an opportunity to experience theatre, music, art, architecture and all  New York has to offer.

Washington Term

Coe's Washington Term includes coursework in political science, cultural excursions and an internship at a government office, a nonprofit agency or even an embassy.

Wilderness Field Station

Located on a pristine lake a few miles from the Canadian border, Coe's campus in the woods offers students from Coe and other colleges an opportunity to spend a portion of their summer doing hands-on learning in the wilderness about the wilderness.

ACM Programs

We especially encourage our students to consider Associated Colleges of the Midwest programs because they are designed with small, liberal arts college students in mind. The ACM academic programs are rigorous, other participants are from colleges like Coe and most have a faculty director who comes from a small liberal arts college. Students can choose from full-term or year-long study abroad options.

"I've learned how completely and entirely dependent we are on the ability to email/call/text people. I did a rural stay in Guanacaste, Costa Rica, where I didn't have access to a phone or the Internet. I developed the most intimate relationships there because I only had the people around me. It was a bit uncomfortable at first, but I learned the most about the language and the culture from that experience."
