Other St. Olaf-Sponsored Programs

Term In China (Fall Semester)

An exchange agreement enables participants to spend Fall or Spring Semester living in the foreign students’ residence hall and studying at East China Normal University (ECNU) in Shanghai, People’s Republic of China. Students receive four credits: two in Chinese language and two for subjects taught in English by ECNU faculty (courses such as “Modern Chinese History”and “20th Century Chinese Literature”).

Study/Service Programs

The study/service programs of St. Olaf combine an enriched learning experience through immersion in a local culture with the singular opportunity to make a direct contribution to the community through a service project coordinated by the host institution. Through a creative integration of service and study, participants earn three or four credits for a semester program and four or five credits for a semester and Interim program. The student develops a course prospectus for each credit; approval is contingent upon appropriateness to the student’s general program at St. Olaf and to the resources of the host institution.
