Global Partnerships

Global Initiatives at California Baptist University (CBU) exists to promote global engagement across all sectors of the university to increase awareness of emerging global issues and help diversify the student body. We seek to initiate and increase preparation for an educational environment extending beyond national boundaries, driven by the demand of a global marketplace.

Types of Partnerships

Study Abroad – An exchange of students from each partner institution for institutional credit.

Visiting Scholar Program – Upon application, CBU can accommodate Visiting Scholars to study and research alongside CBU professors in various academic fields.

Specialty Degree Programs – 2+2, 3+1, 3+2 type degree programs where a student completes some coursework at one university and transfers over to CBU to complete their degree and potentially move into one of our graduate programs.

Short Term Summer Programs – CBU hosts students on campus or in homestays and will learn about American culture, improve English, build friendships with other students and professors, and explore exciting destinations in California!

Exchange Programs – Students come to CBU for up to one year and transfer course credit back to their home institution, available in multiple academic disciplines.

TAP – Each year, students graduate from CBU with the desire to go overseas and teach, let us know if you are interested in receiving our students as teachers.
