Study Abroad

The Gardner-Webb University curriculum provides students with a global perspective of the world so that they may gain the international understanding necessary to be informed citizens. The University also encourages students to explore the appropriateness of study abroad. This can be an integral part of a student's university experience, providing personal growth, cultural understanding, an international perspective, improved world-language skills, and a competitive edge in the eventual job search.

Semester and summer study abroad is currently possible at universities in Malta, Spain, Sweden, Germany, The Netherlands, Costa Rica, Greece, and Canada (French-speaking). Students can also participate in international mission experiences. Honors students may attend special Honors programs that take place abroad. Through the Office of International Programs, students may also arrange to study at foreign universities other than those mentioned above.

During the academic year as well as in the summer, Gardner-Webb sponsors short trips to various overseas destinations. With prior arrangement, credits may be earned for study/travel abroad. Some financial assistance for international study/travel is available to students who meet the necessary eligibility requirements.
