About ETBU

Study Abroad Opportunities

Global Study and Serve

We offer courses taught by ETBU professors in several other countries during the May term and throughout the year. Courses vary yearly but past destinations included Ecuador, Israel, Ethiopia, China, among others. And the cost is comparable to staying on campus!

Develop a New Travel/Study Course

Teachers, have you ever thought about taking a group of students to study in another country? It's a great experience for you and your students. The Office of International Education is here to help! You design the course and recruit the students; we do the rest.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will direct your paths. (Pro. 3:5-6)
