Six-months Semester Abroad
Want to find out what's it like to spend six months abroad? Let our students tell you.
The Semester Abroad(16 credit hours) immerses the student in language, culture, cross-cultural service and research projects. The Semester Abroad is six months (June to December) and will occur in the student's senior year. Cost for this incredible experience is about $6,000 plus the regular SBU tuition (unless the student utilizes a subsidized program such as Hands On with IMB). Students must take a good laptop computer. If the ICS student is married, spouse and family must participate in this overseas experience as well.
