Spending a whole semester or summer studying in a foreign setting is the gold standard of study abroad experiences. You will have opportunities for learning, building relationships, and adventure that you may never again have. During your time, you will be able to dive deep into your host culture and learn a lot about yourself as well. Concordia offers four types of semester study, each leading to exciting destinations throughout the world.
