International Programs

USNWR - Study Abroad Badge For more than 60 years, Pepperdine’s international programs have provided students with unparalleled life-changing opportunities and have been a beacon for global exploration, fostering personal growth, deeper understanding, academic excellence, and a sense of global community. Renowned for its commitment to global education, Pepperdine owns and operates six esteemed campuses across the globe, including Buenos Aires, Florence, Heidelberg, London, Washington, DC, and its latest program, Chateau d’Hauteville in Switzerland—each offering distinctive experiences. A remarkable 80 percent of Seaver College students study abroad, experiencing and exploring local cultures through living and studying in the heart of each city.

Our International Programs span across continents, providing educational and specialized experiences worldwide. Students reside as a group in exceptional accommodations such as a chateau, a historic mansion footsteps from a German castle, or an elegant Italian villa—immersing themselves in rich history and culture. Courses are led by Pepperdine’s own faculty members aligning with the curriculum back on campus while incorporating unique local perspectives. The intimate class sizes and close-knit community foster strong relationships, often leading to life-long friendships. Students engage in service projects, internships, and travel as a group to nearby countries for educational field trips. This blend of interactive education, cultural immersion, and personalized support creates a memorable and impactful experience for students, preparing them for a globalized world and life after college.

Studying abroad with Pepperdine helped me to appreciate how big the world really is. It enabled me to become a better neighbor and global citizen through coming to love and learn from people across the world within their own cultures and communities.

Studying abroad taught me to be independent and confident in my decision-making and capabilities. The friends and mentors I found abroad continue to encourage me to pursue a purposeful life.

Argentina is a fantastic location to learn and teach. What a privilege to be given the opportunity to rejuvenate pedagogy through incorporation of Argentine EFT experiences and service-learning, all shared with undergraduate students, immersed in a new language and culture.
