Study Abroad

All MBU students are eligible to study abroad, regardless of major or foreign language ability. Most courses abroad are offered in English. You can apply for short-term study abroad courses organized and led by MBU faculty members or plan a semester or year abroad at one of our international partner universities or through a third-party program. Working closely with the Spencer Center, all credits can apply toward your MBU degree, keeping you on track for graduation while providing you with valuable cross-cultural skills and experiences.
