Sometimes the deepest, most lasting learning experiences take place far from Calvin's campus.
Consider the many opportunities Calvin offers to study off-campus» for an interim, a semester or a summer. Several off-campus programs offered by Calvin are geared towards those studying either sociology or social work.
Off-campus interim courses
The sociology and social work departments regularly offer interim courses abroad. Study in these courses includes cross-cultural communication, cultural patterns and international relations.
