Cultural Programs

Study Abroad/Off-Campus Study - The Study Abroad/Off-Campus Study program at Illinois College allows students to spend either one semester or a full academic year at an approved program away from campus, either abroad or within the United States. Students who participate in such experiences take courses at a host institution, but may also choose to participate in internships. These programs challenge students to adapt to new cultures, expose them to diverse perspectives, and often enhance their ability to communicate in a second language.

BreakAway Program - The BreakAway program offers a unique learning opportunity through group trips led by IC faculty when classes are not in session. These trips have a specific focus and are from ten days to three weeks long (1-3 credits). The most recent BreakAway destinations include Greece, England, Ireland, Peru, Taiwan, Japan, China, Morocco, Germany and Mexico. 
Intercultural Exchange Program - The Intercultural Exchange Program with Ritsumeikan University of Kyoto, Japan is a unique offering at Illinois College. The program brings 25 Japanese students to the College each spring for five weeks of study with Illinois College students participating as campus hosts, classroom assistants and writing tutors. As a part of the exchange, Ritsumeikan University hosts Illinois College students for three weeks in the summer as part of the Illinois College Views of Japan BreakAway program. This study tour includes seven weeks of instruction in preparation for the trip to Japan.
