What could be better than summer in Paris or Rome? Sunny days
and warm Mediterranean nights make summer a perfect time to study
And what’s more appealing than visiting Beijing, the epicenter of
Chinese art and culture?
year, St. John’s University can help make studying in one of these
ancient cities happen for you by offering a $1,000 deduction in
tuition when you take two courses!
That’s it! Just register for six credits in any Global Studies
program, for example Paris or Rome, and St. John’s will
automatically deduct $1,000 off tuition. In addition, in an effort
to keep summer programs affordable, the University is keeping this
year’s program fees the same as last year’s. Where else could you
get such a deal?
And this summer’s programs are to die for!
At St. John’s new Rome campus, take part in excursions to Paestrum,
Pompeii, Florence, Siena, and Assisi during
Summer Session One (May 29-June 29). Immerse yourself in
Michelangelo’s Italy, studying art and Italian with St. John’s
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences professors. Get down to
business with International Tourism Management, an Italian
Approach; Emergence of Modern Sport, or Special Topics in Sports
Management, International Perspectives; or Business Management and
Strategy; each taught by a College of Professional Studies faculty
member. No matter which courses you choose, you’ll be getting a
decidedly global outlook on the subject.
During Summer Session Two (July 3-August1), you can take
Introduction to Mass Communications: Italy and pair it with one of
several courses in Art. Remember: six credits equals $1,000
Paris is on sale too! At the University’s new Paris site, you can
take part in a joint program between Journalism and Media Studies
and the Department of Languages and Literatures in Summer
Pre-Session (May 18-June 5). Take both a French Class—either French
1010 or Intermediate French Conversation: Emphasis on the Media—as
well as Media, Culture and Communication: France and ka-ching! You
get $1,000 off your tuition.
Or picture yourself in the City of Light for Summer Session One
(June 8-July 2), where you could mix a French language course with
an art or music course, all taught by St. John’s faculty. That’s
six credits earned, $1,000 off the cost and Paris for almost three
full weeks. Imagine sketching the Eiffel Tower for your art project
or practicing your French on a waiter in a Champs Elyseé bistro.
What’s not to love?
If the thought of studying in
China intrigues you, St. John’s has the summer program for
From May 19-June 6, you can journey with faculty from our
Institute of Asian Studies Peking University in Beijing and
Zhejiang University in Hangzhou. Take your pick among courses in
Chinese language, finance, sports, economy and more while you spend
almost three weeks immersed in China’s culture. Above all, you’ll
be able to engage the people of China. Once again, take two courses
and get $1,000 off your tuition.
