Allegheny College offers two courses in support of study away: EXL 300 is designed to help students prepare for and reflect on semester- or year-long off-campus study away experiences, and EXL 594 offers a shorter, intensive study away experience. In addition, a limited number of internships in the health professions are offered as experiential learning courses. More information about these and other off-campus opportunities is available at the Allegheny Gateway.

- Develop the ability to critically examine issues from various cultural perspectives;
