Graceland University Students will have the opportunity to study abroad in England in May 2016. Studying abroad can be one of the most enriching, interesting and educationally stimulating experiences of a student’s entire life. Such an opportunity can offer both personal and professional growth and can help students develop skills and gain experiences not available in a classroom. Graceland courses in England will take place May 2 through 23, 2016, and offer a variety of course topics to choose from.
