About BestSemester

For over forty years, the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities has provided academically rigorous, Christ-centered experiential learning programs that expand academic offerings of its member institutions through the BestSemester programs. Over 13,000 students have benefitted from a BestSemster study experience in the US and abroad.


Program Specific Academic Information

Our programs offer a wide range of academic offerings to meet the unique needs of our students. Each program page has academic information about the courses and internships offered. Links to those pages can be found below:

Student Academic Programs Commission

The Student Academic Programs Commission (SAPC) was created to serve as a source of review, advice and accountability for student programs. SAPC, in essence, serves as a liaison body with the Council membership, and guarantor of the quality of Council student programs. More information about the authority, members, functions, and commission reports can be found on the SAPC Overview page.

  • An overview of all BestSemester programs
  • Course descriptions and their areas of academic application offered on all programs
