Creation Care Study Program: South Pacific)
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. New Zealand shelters 12 % of the world’s endangered species; the country actively engages in conservation efforts and promotes ecological awareness. Through trips to various regions of New Zealand, you will be able to witness your course material firsthand!
Students will meet their third language/cross-cultural requirement by participating in this program. Students will not earn 3 credits, rather the requirement will be waived.
Fee covers tuition, housing, meals, *round-trip airfare (from Los Angeles), educational excursions, pre-departure, and re-entry orientation. Note: additional fees students may encounter include (but are not limited to) local transportation, visas, passports, immunizations, and course fees. A $300 deposit is typically requested within two weeks of acceptance and will be returned to students directly from CCSP.
For comparison, a typical semester in Grantham for 2013-2014 is $19,655.
Note: *Once flights are booked, students are responsible for the cost of the flight if they cannot participate for any reason, including visa issues. Students are responsible for their own transportation to and from the jumping off point in the United States.
A $50 application fee must accompany your application.
