Studying in another part of the world or country can be a valuable part of your academic journey at Hope.
- Junior and senior years are both good times to study abroad, while senior year is a better time for internships within the U.S.
- Theatre electives and Theatre History can be taken off-campus.
- Domestic programs (within the U.S.) are good options for internships.
- It is important to meet with your academic advisor regarding courses you plan on taking off campus and how this fits within your academic plan, particularly credits counting toward your major (and provide appropriate course descriptions).

“Students studying off-campus, whether on domestic or international programs, always return to Hope enriched, challenged and exuberant about their experiences. Our off-campus programs offer wonderful classes and internship opportunities that provide valuable training and new perspectives to our theatre students. Their exposure to a new city or a new country or a new arts culture deepens and broadens their education and personal development in so many significant ways. I encourage every theatre student to find some off-campus study program to augment and expand upon what they have learned here with us ‘at home.’”
