About Cross Cultural Studies
We are all part of a global community, experiencing the light of God’s love for humanity and the world.
We first sent students around the world in 1985. Since then, the Cross Cultural Studies (CCS) program has become one of the most transformative experiences at SAU. From three-week immersions to semesters abroad, CCS is an essential component of what makes SAU unique.
