JBU Semester in Ireland

John Brown University operates a semester-long program in Belfast, Northern Ireland every fall semester. Students live in Belfast, take 15 hours of Core Curriculum course work with Irish professors, and travel throughout Ireland as they connect classroom and experiential learning.

German Studies Program

John Brown University operates a four-week summer program in Germany (GSP) and Austria whereby students can earn six hours of credit. The program is housed in a 300-year-old building situated along the banks of the Main River in Northern Bavaria. Courses in the German Studies program combine classroom work with trips to historical and cultural sites such as Salzburg, Munich, Heidelberg, Nuremberg, and the Austrian Alps. Course offerings vary from year to year.  The GSP is offered upon sufficient faculty sponsorship.

Irish Studies Program

JBU operates a six-week summer program in Ireland whereby students can earn nine hours of credit. The program is directed by a JBU faculty member who also teaches one course. Additional courses are taught by Irish faculty. Ireland itself - the location, the people, and the culture - is the focus of the program. Program facilities are located on the outskirts of Belfast, Northern Ireland, with the curriculum making use of field trips to numerous locations in Ireland. Course offerings (which offer credit from JBU's Core Curriculum) vary from year to year.
