Each year, around 250 Creighton University students live and study in other countries all across the globe. Creighton's Study Abroad program can encompass anything from a traditional university in Europe to living with subsistence farmers in the Dominican Republic. In any case, study abroad means learning as much out of the classroom as in it.
Encuentro Dominicano (Dominican Encounter)
The Encuentro Dominicano (ED) is a semester-long program in the Dominican Republic. Courses are taught by the academic director and other visiting Creighton faculty members. During the semester, students will spend time in a campo, living with a host family and completing a service project. The program is a mix between the traditional approach to study abroad (living together, studying and traveling) and an immersion component that puts students in direct and prolonged contact with communities that survive on subsistence farming and occasional outside employment.
