Study Abroad with the School of Education

Learn overseas through the study abroad options offered by the School of Education at Liberty University.

Study Tour / Course Credit

If you choose to participate in a Study Tour, you will visit significant historic locations and interact with different cultures while you get course credit. Our study tour travel activities will take the place of your class attendance and most course assignments. Additional assignments will be adjusted to fit your travel experiences. 

Major course benchmark assignments, especially for licensure, will still need to be completed per the syllabus.

Assignment Substitution

The Assignment Substitution option is similar to the Study Tour option described above, but instead of getting full course credit, you will be enrolled in a regular course. However, you may gain your instructor’s approval ahead of time to substitute an assignment or group of assignments for activities that occur on the trip.

Destination Intensives

Instead of attending class on the campus of Liberty University, you can attend the same course at a different location if you participate in a Destination Intensive. Class time is conducted at the destination site and, while class is not in session, you can explore your destination’s surroundings. 

Field Experiences/Practicum

Instead of completing your practicum in the U.S., serve overseas in a school along with other Liberty students. Earn course credit for the practicum during the trip.
