The ASC offers students a semester at the Wesley Institute, in Sydney, Australia, where they can explore their artistic talents through Wesley Institute’s outstanding division of Ministry & the Arts. Faculty trained and working in the professional performing arts scene in Sydney will guide students in their thinking through the Christian’s role in culture, whether classical or pop culture. The ASC utilizes a combination of classroom training at the Wesley Institute and experiential learning in the beautiful Australian context. Home stays, service learning and travel around Australia are important components of the ASC. Students will examine the many faces of Australia. They will observe its beautiful landscape, live in the cosmopolitan melting pot of Sydney, serve the poor of Sydney’s multi-cultural ghettos, engage the political capital Canberra and its power players, and come to know the traditions of Aborigines. ASC students participate in the core experiential course and choose the remainder of their credits from Wesley Institute’s arts and ministry courses. ASC students receive up to 16 hours of credit under the ASC prefix on a Colorado Christian University transcript. Contact CCU’s Life Directions Center for more information.

The Council for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU), an association of 107 campuses in the U. S. and Canada, offers semester and summer programs to students of its member institutions. The programs offer a unique opportunity for students to make the world their classroom, going beyond the confines of the traditional classroom. These interdisciplinary learning opportunities are available to upper-class students. For further information, contact CCU’s Life Directions Center  for CCU-specific application procedures.
