Study Abroad

Wherever you go – whether across the state or around the world – our fundamental life needs are the same. That’s why our work knows no geographical boundaries. As a student here, you’ll have the opportunity to travel any number of places. In fact, we award a number of study-abroad scholarships to ensure more students have an international experience each year. Study-abroad opportunities have taken our students to destinations such as China, England, Ecuador, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands. Your international experiences here will give you the perspectives of other cultures, expand your worldview and equip you with personal insight into the global marketplace.

Peace Corps Opportunity

Spring Break in Nicaragua

Join us this spring break (March 6-10, 2018) for a week-long glimpse into the work of Peace Corps volunteers in Nicaragua. This program will expose you to the different sides of service in Nicaragua, including grassroots work with rural communities, a visit with the U.S. Embassy, meeting the in-country Peace Corps volunteers and experiencing Nicaraguan culture and history. You will leave with a deepened understanding of life in Nicaragua, including history and culture.

Service learning will be incorporated into the program by working on development projects restoring mangroves and co-teaching English classes. This immersion experience will give you a deeper understanding of the challenges facing Nicaragua.

This program is a non-credit, service learning experience.

The cost of the trip is $1,450, plus airfare. Applications are due by Oct. 15, and deposits are due Oct. 25.
