The Magellan Project

What is Magellan?

Magellan is a project designed and unique to Washington and Jefferson College.. The project allows for students to travel wherever they please to perform a project. This project can range from internships at home to the other side of the world studying a passion.

The Magellan Project has given me and many other students a great experience to travel and see the world.

The students wishing to perform a project complete a list including:
  • a personal statement.
  • an essay describing your project
  • a budget for food, transportation, lodging, and anything else you feel is necessary
  • and the contacts that you plan to meet while on your trip

  • Going to Italy for five weeks has given me a new sense of confidence. I dealt with problems during my travels that I wouldn't have thought that I would have needed to deal with. Most often I would have freaked out, but I did not have that option during this trip.

    This trip has caused me to grow and learn about myself. I met a lot of interesting people young and old. People that I hope to see again.

    Washington and Jefferson College has given me a great opportunity and one that has impacted my future goals.
