About a Study Abroad Semester
University of La Verne students may study on six continents for a semester or a year. Through La Verne-affiliated programs, students’ options include traditional places like England, France, and Japan, or unique spots like Jordan, Ghana, and India. To participate in a semester program, a student must be at least a sophomore and possess a GPA of 2.75 or above. Foreign language proficiency is required in some countries, but study in many countries is in English. Included in the cost of study abroad are room and tuition, as well as orientation sessions and local and regional visits to historical and cultural sites. Most programs also include meals. Programs have a director on site to provide support. Courses taken through a La Verne-affiliated program are transferable for major, minor, and/or elective classes.
About Study Tours Abroad
La Verne also offers short term study tours abroad during a week or two in November, January Interterm, Spring Break, and the Summer Break. Study tours abroad are taught by University of La Verne faculty as integral parts of selected courses described in the course schedule. Detailed information about study tours can be obtained from the faculty teaching them.
