Summer 2021 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 Anticipated Summer 2021 programs (for-credit).

All Programs are subject to internal approval, minimum enrollment, and ongoing evaluation of local conditions,
including enhanced health and safety reviews in light of COVID-19. All Programs, therefore, are subject to change.

Graduate Ancient Israel Summer Program
June 14 - July 30, 2021

Graduate students spend three weeks in Jerusalem taking Jerusalem University College’s intensive short-term program in Historical and Geographical Settings to discover the ways that Biblical events can be placed in their proper geographical, historical and cultural context. The next four weeks are spent participating fieldwork/excavation at Tel Shimron, a site perched high above the Jezreel Valley on the Nazareth Ridge in Israel with a commanding view of Mount Carmel to the southwest. Learn more>>>

Pilgrimage to Santiago
June 30  - July 28, 2021

The Pilgrimage to Santiago is a four-week course in Spain. The French way of St. James is a museum of over 800k, where over a thousand years, pilgrims have hiked to what is thought the remains of St. James (one of the sons of Zebedee) in Santiago de Compostela. Santiago is credited with bringing the Gospel to Spain and the course will be a combination of the history of Spain, the history of the Camino de Santiago, art history, and travel as a Spiritual transformation. Students will walk the last 120k in the northern part of Spain over 10 days and will ultimately reach their destination in Santiago de Compostela where they will receive their "pilgrim" certificate. Learn more>>>

Tel Shimron Excavation
June 20 - July 30, 2021
June 20 - July 10, 2021 (Biology Intensive Track)

Tel Shimron, an ancient city in Northern Israel with biblical and historical significance, is the location of Wheaton College’s archaeological excavation, sponsored by generous support from the Museum of the Bible. Each summer, Wheaton students have had the opportunity to join a six week dig in Israel, led by Professor of Archaeology, Dr. Daniel Master. At Tel Shimron, undergraduate Wheaton students take classes which emphasize Global Perspectives, History, Social Inquiry, and the practice of Science that meet requirements in the thematic core of Wheaton’s general education curriculum.

The Biology Intensive Track gives upper-level Biology students the opportunity to apply their biological knowledge (specifically human anatomy) within the context of archaeological excavation and learn archaeological methods in an active dig site. 

 
 

Wheaton in the Black Hills
May 31 - July 23, 2021

Wheaton in the Black Hills is a four or eight-week program held at the beautiful 50-acre Science Station campus in the Black Hills of South Dakota. The program offers students the opportunity to complete all of their CATC natural science (SP/SIP) and Advanced Integrative Seminar (AIS) requirements in one summer - living together and studying God's creation in a dynamic Christian community.  Field trip excursions provide the opportunity to experience "science" in the great outdoors. Courses are also offered for Biology, Environmental Science, and Geology majors. Learn more>>>
