In support of its core values regarding developing a global perspective and promoting ethnic and cultural diversity, Point Loma Nazarene University actively encourages all students to spend a full semester studying outside the United States or with a designated domestic program. In an ever-expanding global community, the university recognizes the value of providing for students the opportunity to live and learn in another culture. Such an experience allows students to expand their understanding of other world cultures and reflect upon their own.
In addition to the programs listed below, which have been approved to offer PLNU course credit, the Study Abroad Office offers a wide range of programs through affiliated universities and program providers. Students applying to study abroad enroll by registering with the Study Abroad Office. All students must determine, in advance, with the approval of their faculty advisors and the Director of Study Abroad, how courses taken through these programs will be applied to their specific graduation requirements. Furthermore, students must consider the implications of studying abroad on university-funded scholarships. Program information and application materials may be obtained online at www.pointloma.edu/studyabroad, via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, by telephone at 619-849-2972, or by visiting the office.
Students who are on academic or disciplinary probation, or those who are not cleared by the Dean of Students, are not eligible to participate in Study Abroad programs.
Programs designated with [CCCU] are sponsored by the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities.
