Education off campus
Education majors can fit a semester or summer study abroad experience into their course plans. Northwestern offers semester-long programs in Oman and Romania and summer courses in a variety of disciplines and countries. Education students have even student taught abroad in countries like Guatemala and Jamaica.
Northwestern’s Romania Semester might fit your educational goals. Participants partner with New Horizons Foundation, an organization that uses adventure education and service learning to help Romanian teens learn responsibility, teamwork and trust.
If you’re mission-minded, you can volunteer as a teacher, aide or tutor on campus, in the community or around the world. Northwestern’s exemplar campus ministry program includes a ministry to Orange City’s Hispanic residents. Enlaces en Cristo ministry members teach English to Spanish speakers and tutor Hispanic children in English and other subject areas. Or take a 10-day or 10-week mission trip overseas to work with children and teach ESL or Vacation Bible School.
