Council for Christian Colleges and Universities Off Campus Study Programs
Because Campbell University is an affiliate of the Council of Christian Colleges and Universities, an association of more than 100 private liberal arts Christian colleges and universities, a number of off-campus learning opportunities are available to juniors and seniors with a minimum G.P.A. of 2.75.

These include an American Studies Program in Washington, D.C., a Latin American Studies Program in Costa Rica, the Los Angeles Film Studies Center, a Middle East Studies Program in Cairo, a Russian Studies Program in Moscow and Nizhni Novgorod, and a summer study program at the University of Oxford.

Located in Washington, D.C., the program offers a non-traditional, inter-disciplinary, issue-oriented learning experience. Students gain on-the-job experience through an internship in the field of their choice and study current national and international issues in seminars led by Washington policy experts. ASP serves as Campbell’s Washington campus and students may earn up to 16 semester hours of credit toward their degree. By exploring public policy issues in the light of biblical truth and working in internships which help prepare them for a future in the marketplace, students gain insight and experience that can strengthen their ability to live and work in a biblically faithful way in society and in their chosen field. The aim of the program is to prepare students to live faithfully in modern society as followers of Christ. One unit of study each semester looks at an economic issue in either domestic or international policy.

Los Angeles Film Studies Center
The Los Angeles Film Studies Center (LAFSC), located in Hollywood, is a semester-long internship/seminar program for upper division students who are interested in an introduction to the work and workings of the mainstream Hollywood film industry. Although not intended as a substitute for film school, the LAFSC curriculum is designed to expose students to the industry, to the many academic disciplines that might be appropriate to it, and to critical thinking and reflection on what it means to be a Christian in this field of endeavor. As such, the curriculum is balanced between courses of a theoretical nature and courses that offer students a more applied introduction to the world of film. The curriculum consists of two required seminars focusing on the role of film in culture and the relationship of faith to work. In addition internships in various segments of the film industry provide students with valuable hands-on experience. Participating students may earn 16 semester hours of credit, which may be applied to a variety of student programs through consultation with an academic adviser.

Middle East Studies Program

Participants spend two weeks traveling to Israel, including time in the West Bank. Additional field trips are available for interested students. The Middle East Studies Program encourages evangelical Christians to relate to the Muslim world in an informed and constructive manner.

Russian Studies Program
Students attending the Russian Studies Program (RSP) spend a semester studying the language, culture and history of Russia as well as current political and economic issues. In addition they interact with leaders in the community to develop a better understanding of contemporary Russian society and how, as Westerners, they can foster more interaction with the country.

Mobility characterizes the program. Two weeks are spent in Moscow and 10 weeks in Nizhni Novgorod (formerly Gorky). The final three weeks in St. Petersburg allow students to live with a Russian family and to experience Russian culture first-hand. A service project during this segment of the program gives students the opportunity to have a practical "hands on" work experience alongside Russian nationals in a wide range of professional settings. Students generally earn 16 semester hours of credit.

Oxford Honors Program
Honors students and other qualified individuals have the opportunity to study inEngland through an interdisciplinary semester at Oxford University. The Oxford Honors Program allows students to participate in a variety of study programs in the arts, religion, history, economics, philosophy, and many other subjects.

Field trips are also included in the educational experience. The Oxford Honors Program aims at providing rigorous academic programs which increase critical thinking skills with a Christian perspective. Students earn 16 semester hours of credit.

Unlike the Coalition-sponsored programs, credits at the Oxford Summer School Program are generated directly at the University of Oxford. Students are able to earn 6 to 9 semester credits.

Summer Institute of Journalism
The summer Institute of Journalism is a Christ-centered program that brings students to Washington, D.C. for seminars with over 25 top professional journalists from the media. It blends classroom experience with hands-on news gathering and news writing opportunities over an intensive four weeks from mid-May to mid-June, for which participants receive four semester hours of credit from their home campuses.

Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC)

Professor of Military Science: LTC Campagna (Chair)

Assistant Professors: LTC Reese, CPT Psaltis, CPT Collins, CPT Smith

Instructor: MSG Parker

The objective of Campbell University’s ROTC Program is to motivate and prepare selected students to serve as leaders in the U.S. Army. The course of instruction provides a practical understanding of the concepts and principles of military science and aids in developing a strong sense of duty, honor, country, and citizenship. Our program promotes individual fitness as well as teamwork and provides numerous leadership opportunities. Students will also gain an understanding of and appreciation for international relations and national security. Attainment of these objectives prepares students for commissioning and establishes a solid foundation for their professional development and effective performance in the uniformed services or in civilian enterprise.

The Army ROTC Program is progressive in nature and is composed of a Basic and Advanced Course. Enrollment in the Basic Course is open to all full time freshmen and sophomores. Completion of the Basic Course is a prerequisite for Advanced Course application. A student who enrolls in the Basic Course does not incur any obligation to serve in the Army. Prior military science or high school JROTC experience may result in direct Advanced Course placement. Entrance into the Advanced Course is selective and is based upon demonstrated performance and leadership potential. Students who satisfactorily complete the Advanced Course are commissioned Second Lieutenants upon graduation.
