Let your adventure change the world!

Northwestern College provides a unique study abroad experience engaging the culture of post-communist Romania, building on the grassroots development work of New Horizons Foundation. Living in the Jiu Valley of Romania, students study and experience: Romanian culture, history, and language, Eastern Orthodoxy, Sustainable Development and other topics. All of these are combined with a strong praxis component within the context of a dynamic non-profit organization – New Horizons Foundation. The semester abroad program includes national excursions, back-packing trips into Romania’s Carpathian Mountain ranges, and homestays with Romanian families.
