Luther’s academic program stresses education beyond the classroom walls and encourages students to engage in real-world learning in order to test their career goals and gain valuable professional experience. Off-campus study is one important form of experiential learning, and anthropology students enjoy a wide array of options for studying in international and domestic settings. These experiential learning programs offer the opportunity to apply knowledge and skills learned in the classroom to real-world situations. Other valuable features of study abroad programs in particular are learning through cultural immersion, prolonged exposure to another language, and the opportunity to engage in sustained reflection on one’s own culture and value system.
Other semester, yearlong, January Term, and summer programs in the US and abroad are offered by Luther College, the Associated Colleges of the Midwest, and third-party providers. For more information contact the Center for Global Learning.
