Special Programs

Some of the most valuable education happens outside of the classroom. Taylor's special programs intentionally engage students in a variety of settings—on campus and overseas—to further challenge them and enrich their education. 

The Freshman Irish Studies Program (FISP)

Every year, a group of incoming freshmen spend their first semester as Taylor students in Ireland. FISP students are exposed to a new culture while developing formative relationships and experiencing college for the first time.

The Honors Guild 

Honors students are challenged to dive deeper into their academic pursuits through research, discussion, and service.

The Village Tree Experience

Qualified upperclassmen engage with the issues facing orphans and vulnerable children. Participating students live together on campus, forming a tight-knit learning community.

Taylor also offers a variety of study abroad opportunities.
