Study Abroad

Study Abroad

Study abroad programs enhance your college experience and expand your perspective. You will study with knowledgeable professors, be immersed in unique cultures, and see firsthand how you can make a difference. At Corban, you aren’t limited to Salem. You have many opportunities to see the world!

Why study abroad?

Studying abroad through Corban University 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 B.A. or B.S. degree abroad.

Program Outcomes

You’ve probably heard that “travel is the best education.” But studying abroad through a Corban-sponsored program allows you to:

  • 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.
