Summer 2019 Off-Campus Programs
Wheaton College faculty design and lead a variety of summer international or domestic study programs to complement and enhance the on-campus academic experience. Here are the Summer 2019 programs (for-credit):
European Theatre Studies
Students will attend plays, participate in workshops and attend lectures/discussions at the Prague Quadrennial. When possible, plays will be selected that expose the students to a Euro-centric production style - typically more visual and nonlinear than American realist productions. Students will also attend workshops while in Prague and have opportunity to discuss theatre practice with local and international professional artists.

Iron Sharpens Iron
May 13 - July 5, 2019
In 2019, The Wheaton Center for Faith, Politics and Economics (FPE) invites students to join us as we focus on the economics and politics of Southeast Asia. Students will observe how different political and economic approaches impact human flourishing in Indonesia, Cambodia, Vietnam and Singapore. This compact area contains the most populated Muslim country in the world, the most economically advanced country in Asia, one country that was at war with America for approximately 10 years and a country with the largest religious complex in the world. Students will meet with business, political and church leaders during this once in a lifetime study program. Retired U.S. Navy JAG Captain David Iglesias is the FPE Director and former United States Attorney for New Mexico; he will be leading the trip along with four Wheaton College faculty instructors.

Wheaton in England
May 20 - July 17, 2019
The Wheaton in England 2019 program centers around the idea of spiritual and literary pilgrimage. In the unifying seminar, students read select literary offerings that offer the chance to practice spiritual and academic reflection on how language and place mutually constitute each other and become locales in which we are guest and host of the Spirit of God. Students select from a range of courses: a place-centered survey of Victorian literature, a Medieval literature course that figures the intersection of memory and place as a site of both Christian devotion and literary production, and figure courses that offer visions of land and pilgrimage from Eliot's desolate landscapes to Chaucer's vibrant (and sometimes disturbing) urban spaces.
