Brittany Hill, a WWC Junior, learned traditional weaving techniques during a home stay in Bann Nong Kheaw, a small village in the mountains of northern Thailand. Brittany traveled to Thailand over winter break as part of her SOC 377 Thailand: Social Changes and Inequalities class, one of Warren Wilson College's many WorldWide courses--faculty-led courses that include at least 8 weeks of on-campus coursework, concluded by two to eight weeks of travel. Over the years, the WorldWide program has sponsored courses in a variety of academic disciplines that include travel and cross-cultural exchange. Every qualified student has the opportunity to travel off campus on a cross-cultural educational experience, such as WorldWide course or a semester abroad at one of Warren Wilson's partner institutions or another accredited program.
During this year's WorldWide Week, an event that showcases the prospective WorldWide courses for the next academic year, students will have the opportunity to meet with course leaders, hear from students who have participated in previous courses, learn about study abroad opportunities, sample international cuisines and more. WorldWide Week will take place March 5 – March 9. Click here for a complete schedule of WorldWide Week events.
