Off to the Third World

If you attend Goshen College, as part of your requirements, you will spend one trimester (14 weeks) working and studying in a developing nation. Since 1968, major host countries have been: Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Guadeloupe, Jamaica, Haiti, Belize, and El Salvador.

Each group of 19 Goshen students has its own faculty member along, and half the trimester is spent studying the language and culture of the host nation; the other time is spent actually working in a rural community.

The students live with native families, but gather often, particularly during the first seven weeks, as a unit for study and field trips.
