Study Abroad

Study abroad is an opportunity to earn Pacific University academic credit for courses taken at a foreign university or taught by a Pacific University faculty member in another country.

Pacific University offers study abroad programs which allow students to study abroad for a semester or an entire academic year. Students can also participate in short-term study abroad programs offered typically during the winter term or in early summer.
