INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMS

MESSAGE FROM DIRECTOR

Image titleJarvis Christian College is a private, historically Black liberal arts college. It offers a nationally recognized individualized curriculum, providing opportunities for experiential education in domestic and international settings. Our students connect classroom learning with real-world experience by completing career development internships or externships, participating in civic engagement and service-learning projects, and getting involved in social justice leadership work. In addition, they are afforded an opportunity to have international and intercultural experiences. Currently, students may choose from five study abroad programs and we are presently working on additional MOU’s.

We strive to give every student the tools necessary to be an informed global citizen. Located as we are in a rural area, we strive to take advantage of opportunities to infuse global issues into our curriculum and give every student the opportunity for an international experience. I invite you to contact us or visit our office for more information. We can help you decide what international experience is best for you and how to make it affordable. I look forward to seeing you.
