November 23, 2015

St. John’s University ranks among the top-40 doctorate-granting universities in the country for the study abroad participation rate of its undergraduate students. In its most recent Open Doors Data report released on November 17, the Institute of International Education lists St. John’s alongside some of the top colleges in the nation.

In the 2013-14 school year, St. John’s saw 34.1% of its students study abroad in at least one of more than 25 international education opportunities offered by the University.

“Our study abroad program has grown in leaps and bounds since its inception 30 years ago, and we are honored to be among the elite in this category,” said Robert A. Mangione, Ed.D., R.Ph., Provost of St. John’s University. “Our enhanced study abroad initiatives provide St. John’s students with an outstanding global academic experience and the opportunity to  learn, work, and serve in extraordinary places throughout the world”

St. John’s University offers over a dozen locations for study abroad across Europe, Latin America, Africa and Asia, including its own campuses in Rome, Italy and Paris, France. 

The University’s unique Discover the World: Europe program allows students from various disciplines to spend a semester engaged in comparative education, learning from local faculty in three important European cities- Paris, Seville, and Rome. In addition to semester-long programs, St. John’s also offers international courses for as little as 10 days during an intersession, with the remainder of the course taking place online or on one of St. John’s New York campuses.
