Study Abroad Program at Concordia Seminary

Study Abroad

Students interested in study abroad opportunities should contact the coordinator for International Seminary Exchange Programs or the Registrar for more information.

Through Concordia Seminary’s International Seminary Exchange Program, students may study at partnering seminaries across the globe.

The duration of these exchanges is one academic year, except for the Korea site, which is one academic semester. These programs are primarily for enrichment; however, most participants do earn some credits by transfer. A letter grade must be submitted in order for a course to be considered for transfer credit.

Students are eligible if they have achieved a second-year classification with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher.

Concordia Seminary is an Associate School in cooperation with Jerusalem University College (JUC; formerly the Institute of Holy Land Studies), which offers unique opportunities for the study of archaeology through on-site courses and field expeditions in the Holy Land. Up to six credit hours may be earned at JUC.

On occasion, Concordia Seminary students are given the opportunity to spend two weeks in Israel studying the Bible within the context of the Holy Land’s geography while developing new preaching and teaching skills. On these trips, groups tour seven to 10 sites each day as they consider the region’s past, present and future.

The Seminary is grateful to the donors who help make these trips possible. If you would like to help students and faculty learn through formation trips, please contact our Advancement staff at 800-822-5287 or, or make a gift today.
