What is study abroad?

There are different routes to engage in a global experience while attending Park University. A typical study abroad experience might include a semester or a year abroad studying at one of our partner institutions, taking courses with locals or learning a second language. Other options include taking part of a summer school program, short term programs led by Park faculty abroad during spring or fall break, or completing an internship abroad.


Park University encourages students in Parkville, distance learning students and all campus centers to study abroad. However, to be eligible students must meet the following requirements:

  • 2.5 cumulative GPA
  • Students must have completed a minimum of two semesters at Park University
  • Good academic standing and positive discipline record at Park

In addition to the general requirements listed above, the institution or program to which you are applying may require a higher GPA as part of their admission. Additional requirements may include junior standing status at the time of application.

Courses are taught in English, unless noted by the program. If you are interested in language training there are programs available too.
