Message from the Director:

Jarvis Christian University is a private, historically Black liberal arts university. 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. Each student is afforded an opportunity to have international and intercultural experiences. Currently, students can choose to take either Arabic, Mandarin, or Kiswahili from one of our visiting Fulbright faculty. Students have opportunities to travel abroad and learn language and cultures from the culture’s origin. Additionally, we strive to give every student the tools necessary to be an informed global citizen. We 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.
