Study Abroad

Seek adventure. Gain perspective. Push boundaries. Propel forward.

Curious how the culture of the United States influences the global scene? Driven to learn a foreign language? In pursuit of a unique academic challenge?

Studying abroad enables you to experience different cultures firsthand. Living and learning in a foreign country empowers you to grow in your sense of independence and to gain cross-cultural communication skills, boosting your professional potential. Return with a deeper self-understanding and a stronger sense of how to contribute to a global community.

Pfeiffer students have traveled far and wide; recent study abroad trips include travel to Spain, Costa Rica, China, Japan, Italy, the United Kingdom, Israel, the Czech Republic and Australia.

These organizations offer a wide variety of global academic programs. Visit their websites, or stop by the Wick S. Sharp Learning Center for more information. Choose from one-week community service projects or semester-long and year-long academic opportunities.
