Expanding your world view

showing a child a stethescopeAt Linfield University, you will be challenged to look beyond your hometown and country to understand world issues. Gain an appreciation in the differences that make all cultures individual and unique.

We encourage all of our students to study abroad at least once before they graduate. As part of a Linfield education, you have the opportunity to participate in exciting international study abroad programs as early as your sophomore year. One feature unique to Linfield is that the university will pay for your first round-trip airfare. 

If you complete your prerequisites for our nursing program on the McMinnville Campus before enrolling in the BSN program on our Portland Campus, there are many semester abroad opportunities.
