The month of January is an optional term for CU students which provides the ideal study abroad scenario. Students at Cornerstone are encouraged to experience the world outside of their every-day routine. Studying abroad is a great way to do this, while also accomplishing academic goals and expanding your worldview. J-Term 2017 trips coming soon!

Course: COM-311/SOC-352 - Intercultural Communication
Trip Leader: John Duff
London provides an opportunity to experience more than one culture while you're here. Within the city alone, at least 300 nationalities are represented. This European city provides access to sites and activities representing the multiple forces that shape and reflect culture. London is a "user-friendly" city that permits firsthand intercultural interaction!
Courses: ENG-224 - Irish Literature and Culture; ENG-328 - Selected Irish Authors and Literary Topics
Trip Leader: Jason Stevens
Ireland has a rich culture and body of literature that shares a keen awareness of it's past. This includes it's valuable heritage as well as a source of deep cultural division that each successive age must reevaluate on its own terms. This study is an enriching approach as the ages build upon themselves and are engaged with themselves so that they form a commentary on each other!
Course: HIS-332: Classical World: Greece and Rome
Trip Leader: Dr. Douglas Mohrmann
This trip will provide students the opportunity to study the Bible, particularly the New Testament in Greece. They will be able to see locations mentioned in both the Classical Greece and the Testament by doing a study tour of the country! In addition, the trip will also provide content to understand the modern European Union and incorporate students interacting with the people of Greece.
Course: SWK-480: International Child Welfare
Trip Leader: Nola Carew
Cornerstone University and Bethany Christian Services have developed a solid partnership that will provide students a unique opportunity to explore development and best practices in international child welfare.
