WHY STUDY ABROAD?
Studying abroad through our partner programs develops responsive, globally-engaged Christians who will make a difference in the world for Jesus Christ. Consider your calling and career while earning credits toward your Corban University bachelor’s degree abroad.
You’ve probably heard that “travel is the best education.” Studying abroad allows you to expand your academic experience, as well as enrich the following:
- Make a difference: Become a life-long learner, committed to cultural understanding in an ongoing process of learning, growth, and adjustment.
- Expand your perspective: Emerge from study abroad with a worldview wider than Salem, Oregon, or North America.
- Practice cultural responsiveness: Connect with your host families, communities, and countries.
- Connect study abroad to academic success: Integrate study abroad into your field(s) of study.
- Carry out the Great Commission: Know the place of your faith in the world.
Corban students can participate in any GlobalEd program offered by the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU). Study internationally or explore your passion for music, film, or politics in the U.S. Whichever program you choose, it’s sure to be a life-changing experience.
