Off-Campus Study

The knowledge and experience gained as you travel and study is a great complement to an education on Olivet's campus. As you study in Bourbonnais and take advantage of all that the Chicago-area has to offer, you'll have the opportunity to spend a semester in other influential cities, both in the United States and around the globe.

Living in a foreign country, experiencing a different culture, growing into a more confident, independent individual — these are life-changing experiences you have to see to believe! At Olivet, they can become a reality.

Olivet offers many opportunities for off-campus study. Whether exploring the political currents of the Middle East, interning in the Los Angeles film industry, or debating with world-renowned scholars at Oxford University, we will work with you to find a study program that meets your plans and aspirations.

Destinations that Olivet students frequently choose include: 

  • Ecuador
  • Middle East (Jordan)
  • Oxford
  • Japan
  • Los Angeles
  • New York
  • Uganda
  • Washington, D.C.
  • Nashville
  • Costa Rica
  • Spain
  • Chicago
  • Italy
