Welcome to International Programs

Our mission is to provide students with a life changing international experience designed for intellectual, social, personal, and spiritual transformation.

Pepperdine University's International Programs offer students the opportunity to emerge as global citizens with new cultural perspectives and relationships.

Students become members of a community that encourages them to undergo intellectual, personal and spiritual transformation as they ask life's big questions: Who am I? What is my purpose? What do I really believe, and why?

No matter which program they participate in, students will become a member of Pepperdine's most loved traditions as they create experiences and friendships that will last a lifetime.

Pepperdine has facilities and programs all over the world. Programs are held during the academic year and summer. More information about each of our programs can be found on each program's webpage.
