Study Abroad

Sometimes the most life-changing lessons happen outside the perimeter of campus. But you don’t always know that until you arrive. Immerse yourself in another culture while earning credit. Observe new ways of life, explore nature and architecture of new-to-you sights, experience new foods, observe new customs, and examine new ways of thinking -- all while taking courses, improving your language skills, participating in service projects, and making life-long friendships with fellow study abroad students.

Destinations -- where you can learn

We offer semester-long study abroad programs in Oxford, England; Montevideo, Uruguay; and Leipzig, Germany; as well as select programs at locations around the world through our relationship with Council for Christian Colleges and Universities’ study abroad programs and short-term mission experiences through WorldWide Witness.

The United States is culturally diverse, too. In addition to getting your passport stamped, you can also participate in cross-cultural experiences right in the USA, including Washington, D.C., Nashville and Hollywood.

Faculty-led experiences -- short-term trips

Travel with faculty members to teach English in China, assist social ventures aiding aboriginal communities in Australia, or visit other locations with a specific academic or service interest.

At ACU, you can make the world your classroom.
