Admission into the Worrell Honors Program for Studies Abroad in Germany is competitive and open to all students with a 3.0 GPA or higher. Substantial financial aid is available.

Established in 1990 and endowed by Mr. T. Eugene and Dr. Anne R. Worrell, ’39, the Worrell Honors Program for Studies Abroad has been centered in Germany since 1991.

The program comprises three stages: Spring Semester preparation, May Term sequence abroad, and optional independent study projects.

The program is available to all students, regardless of major and is strongly recommended for majors in political science, history, legal studies, and English. It provides a distinctive educational experience in terms of quality, sensitivity to global issues, and unique structure. Its components are custom-tailored for Virginia Intermont students by the Virginia Intermont faculty, the faculties of the University of Regensburg, the University of Munich, and the University of the Armed Forces (Munich). The results of this cooperative effort are then integrated into an exceptional academic product available solely to the Virginia Intermont student body.

For application information, please contact Dr. Achille Riviello, Director of the Worrell Honors Program for Studies Abroad in Germany, at 276-466-7987 or
