Wingate University's international studies programming continues to branch out and grow. During the 2005-2006 year, 138 juniors and seniors took advantage of study abroad opportunities. With our 10-day study/travel program, W'International, students chose to study either the First Peoples of Canada in Alberta, Hong Kong's colonial past, the Allied landings on D-Day along the Normandy coast, 20th-century Chilean history and literature in Santiago and Puerto Varas, the biodiversity of Costa Rica's Pacific coast, or the vibrant cultural blend of the Rhône-Alpes region of France.

Additionally, 17 students spent the semester studying in the U.K. as part of the Wingate-in-London program, while others spent the semester in Copenhagen, Denmark. In 2006-2007, our W'International seminars will be taking students to Germany, Singapore, Croatia, Italy, Mexico, and Scotland. Meanwhile, other students will be studying in London, Copenhagen, or Alcalá, Spain for the semester.
