Study Abroad Options Through Linfield College:

  • For a semester - in one of 33 locations around the world; many of these sites offer courses only in the target language
  • For a year - typically language majors study abroad for a year - in Ecuador, France, Germany, Japan, & Spain
  • During January Term - in Linfield faculty-led courses that are interdisciplinary. 10-12 programs offered each year.
  • Not sure if you should go for a Jan Term or Semester/Year?  See the Jan Term Abroad vs Semester/Year Abroad Benefits.


Linfield pays the round trip airfare from the Portland International Airport to your destination city, for your first study abroad experience!  In addition, if your major requires you to study abroad, your second airfare is also provided.

Linfield requires all language majors to spend a year abroad.  Language minors, as well as majors in anthropology, international business, intercultural communication, and international relations must spend a semester abroad, all through our university partnerships. 

Get started in your journey abroad early in your Linfield experience - speak with your faculty adviser and seek out the staff in the International Programs Office in Walker Hall, Suite 120. 

"I have learned a lot about myself so far while studying abroad. I’ve learned I am a lot stronger and independent than I thought. While here, I have had to endure situations and problems without the help of my parents holding my hand and guiding me through something. It has been liberating to grow as a person while studying abroad and this has been one of the best decisions I have made in my college career."  Hannah Kintz
