Life and Learning around the Globe
At St. John’s, you’ll experience considerably more than merely “studying abroad.” The University provides students at all levels with opportunities to immerse themselves in the languages, cultures, and societies of their study destinations. Our Global Studies courses allow you to expand your horizons by living, learning, and serving at our international campuses as well as our locations on almost every continent.
Being engaged with the world around us—it’s what a St. John’s education is all about. Our residential New York City campuses provide students with the excitement of studying in a truly global city with classmates who hail from nearly 120 countries. Students also have the opportunity to study at our international campuses in Rome, Italy, and Paris, France, as well as our international locations in Seville and other exciting sites. Learn more about our programs around the world, and see how you can be a part of the SJU global experience.
Students at St. John’s also experience global learning here at “home.” Our three residential New York City campuses—in Queens, Staten Island, and Manhattan—reflect the cosmopolitan flavor of America’s largest and most international city. Nearly 30 percent of all New Yorkers are foreign born, with a vast array of languages spoken on the streets, in the shops and restaurants. So it’s fitting that SJU ranks fourth nationwide in ethnic diversity and is a “Top 100” university for most international students, according to U.S. News & World Report. It’s the ideal environment for our students’ traditional focus on cultural engagement without bounds.
St. John’s faculty and students form a global community, working to promote knowledge and social justice. Our more than 160,000 alumni form a scholarly and professional network around the world. Our partnering institutions—academic and service-based organizations—are on nearly every continent, offering students uncommon opportunities for living, learning, and making a palpable difference in the lives of those in need. We invite you to join our community.
