Learning Without Borders

The Adventist Colleges Abroad (ACA) program at Union College allows students to immerse themselves in the culture and life of the host country and become conversant in the language; mature socially, spiritually, and intellectually; and develop sensitivity to cultural differences and a sense of responsibility for and mission to other people of the world. This opportunity is provided to qualified students for international study while completing degree requirements at their home colleges and universities.

Bachelors of Arts majors and minors in French, German, Italian, and Spanish may be earned through this program. Language studies are also available in Greek, Hebrew, Portuguese and Russian during the summer.

Students currently have the opportunity to study abroad through the ACA program at Union College in the following countries during the academic year: France, Austria, Germany, Italy, Brazil, Argentina, Spain, Lebanon, and England. Summer programs are available in France, Austria, Italy, Brazil, Spain, Israel, and China. 

Union College is a member of ACA, a cooperative arrangement between Adventist colleges and universities of the United States and participating Adventist colleges and universities in other countries. ACA is operated by the Education Department and the Higher Education Cabinet of the North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
