Discover the South Pacific through the Creation Care Study Program! The programs are geared toward non-science majors, and focus on the concept of Biblical stewardship. You will meet your cross cultural requirement and also meet general education requirements like laboratory science, science technology and the world, and Christian beliefs.
The mountainous islands of New Zealand provide an ideal setting for students to explore environmental stewardship.
