Everything on a Wells College international studies program is designed to enhance your education in the classroom and in your everyday interactions with the sights, sounds & customs of a new culture.

Small interactive classes, a focus on language acquisition, staff with keen insights into the local culture, and a commitment to health and safety are just a few of the hallmarks of the Wells overseas study programs in Florence, Italy and Dakar, Senegal.
