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.

Public Health Update

Pacific is updating its travel recommendations to minimize exposure to the COVID-19 virus.

Six students from the Master of Social Work program participated in a 20-day immersion course in Merida, Mexico during winter break. The focus of the course was to learn more about what social services and advocacy groups are available in the Yucatan area, and Merida in particular, and where there may be gaps in services.

All first year and new transfer students are invited to apply for the Global Scholars First Year Travel stipend. The stipend offers students a discount of up to $1500 to participate in spring 2020 travel courses to Namibia, Costa Rica, Spain, or Romania. Students with second language proficiency and diverse cultural or linguistic backgrounds are especially encouraged to apply by Nov. 1.
