As summer begins, students prepare for their summer abroad programs. Pepperdine offers a multitude of programs across the globe and encourages students to take advantage of these opportunities to travel and learn.
Pepperdine will offer a new program for the fall 2022 and spring 2023 in Barcelona, Spain. Applications are due April 18 for prospective students.
Students said they are experiencing all sorts of things and emotions being abroad. Most importantly, they can finally travel outside of their designated countries and having a great time learning about new places and experiencing new things.
Valentine’s Day is a mainstay holiday in the United States, celebrated by many people each year, but internationally, it is not always as commonly commemorated. Students who grew up abroad discuss what the holiday looked like for them as children compared to how it’s celebrated domestically.
Four of Pepperdine’s International Programs’ locations reopened in fall 2021, granting students the chance to study abroad. Three students who took this opportunity during the fall semester discuss their experiences and the transition back to Malibu.
The statistics behind Pepperdine’s International Programs and its participants give a general overview of the abroad experience. Students and IP Director Beth Laux discuss why these programs matter.
Some students believe Pepperdine’s location and culture contribute to a false reality. Beneath the surface, many students crave more vulnerable conversations surrounding topics like mental health.
After Pepperdine shut down its study abroad offerings for fall 2020, many students had to change their plans. The directors of each international program, however, are doing the same.
The Buenos Aires international program is suspended until further notice.
Pepperdine notified their students Wednesday morning that classes will be online for the rest of the semester.
