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.

Where will you go next year? You decide. See all our study abroad program locations.

Note:  All students intending to study abroad for a semester or year or for summer, are REQUIRED TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT with Spresa Halimi prior to beginning the application process.
