Semester in Jerusalem, Israel - Fall 2021

“The Semester in Jerusalem program was a life-changing experience that helped me engage in the complex narratives of the ancient and modern land of Israel. It was such a gift to gain eyes for the global church and to witness Scripture coming alive as I explored every part of the land alongside other Wheaton students.”

Wheaton in Mexico - Spring 2020

"The program was a wonderful experience of living with host families, taking classes, becoming integrated with the local community, and going on excursions to other parts of the country. God provided us with great church communities in Querétaro and worshipping with the global church was a highlight of the experience"


DIS Copenhagen - Spring 2020

“Copenhagen is a vibrant, rapidly developing city that differentiates itself from other urban centers with its sustainability and goals for carbon neutrality. This seemed like a perfect fit with my interest in sustainable economic development . . . Studying abroad has encouraged me to more fully accept God as my constant companion. When I left friends and family and entered an entirely new environment, His presence continued. He even placed new people in my life exactly when I needed them.”
