Pursue Justice. Earn Credit.

You can be part of the generation that owns and ends poverty by participating in a semester abroad unlike the rest.

Why InterVarsity Semester Programs

Inspired by God’s love and compassion, we seek to own and end poverty. We believe this requires a generation of students who are both intellectually and spiritually engaged.

We believe that in order to effect transformation in individuals and communities, we must participate in God’s transformation by addressing our own spiritual and physical poverties.

We believe that God is already at work transforming the world. Light, beauty, and hope continue to thrive in hard places.

Our 16-week study abroad programs place you in these contexts of poverty and transformation, offering profound lessons to those who are willing to learn.

On either semester program, you will:

  • ENGAGE with poverty & injustice
  • EXPLORE cross-cultural vocation
  • SERVE in a four-week field practicum
  • STUDY 15 credits of rigorous coursework
  • LIVE in intentional community
  • GROW in Christian spiritual formation
