Study abroad

Every Linfield student, regardless of major, has the opportunity to study abroad. We believe so strongly in the importance of studying abroad that we provide three options for doing so, and even pay for the first round-trip airfare from Portland International Airport.

Student research

At Linfield, learning doesn't just occur inside the classroom. It extends into laboratories, out in the field or through internships. You can assist faculty members with their projects, or branch out to conduct research on your own or with your peers.
