Students at Brescia University can be a foreign exchange student at Nagoya University of Foreign Studies in Owensboro’s sister city, Nissin, Japan. Brescia signed an agreement with Nagoya last year. Students from both universities can pay regular tuition to their home university, and may attend the other without any additional cost. Students are expected to pay the room and board rate of the host university. Scholarships would be available to qualifying students from Brescia.
There are two programs that Brescia students could participate in:
a. Contemporary Japan Program in Nagoya: Classes in art, political science, culture, history and business would be offered in English for a visiting student. Generally speaking, courses would transfer to Brescia (student should consult with Academic Dean).
b. Japanese Language and Japanese Studies Program: The main focus here is mastery of the Japanese language.

The second international study abroad opportunity is a two-week study tour in Rome, Italy that takes place in June 2013. President Larry Hostetter will lead this tour that will consist of an intensive theology course which will study the way Catholic theology is manifested in the art of Rome and Italy. Excursions from Rome may include Florence, Orvietto, Assisi, Naples and Pompei.
