Discover the World: Pharmacy
The DTW: Pharmacy program is offered every spring semester for 2nd-year pharmacy students and follows the same format as Discover the World: Europe. The program allows students to enroll in courses specifically geared towards their academic program with the intent of keeping students on track for graduation.
- Innovative Modular Format
Through Discover the World’s unique course format, you’ll complete a semester’s worth of credits in three, five-week sessions—with one or two courses in each city. By focusing on a few classes in each “module,” you’ll find time to become immersed in each campus’s academics while exploring the city. Imagine taking Religions of the World in Paris, where you'll get a taste of the city's religious diversity (and it's relationship to France's modern political realities) by visiting locations such as the Grand Mosque of Paris; or taking City of Rome during your stay in Italy, where you'll explore the Eternal City's art, historical periods, and literary and cultural movements by visiting a number of the city's most renowned mounuments and musuems; or taking a Spanish language course in Seville, where you'll learn conversation skills within the context of Spanish culture.
- The Vincentian Difference
Providing a helping hand to those in need is inspiring and humbling work. Helping to change lives in an inspiring experience—one that enhances the study abroad experience. By engaging in service-learning activities, you’ll make a difference in the lives of those you work with at local schools, in soup kitchens, or in other locations throughout our cities. Through our Academic Service-Learning offerings, you’ll work with the community while fulfilling course-based experiential education requirements, a truly Vincentian education.
For more information on which Global Studies courses apply to your college and major we recommend meeting with your Dean or Academic Advisor.

Fall 2015 & Spring 2016 Program Fee: $8,290 (tuition and airfare not included)
Note: the Program Fee covers accommodation, our meal program abroad, excursions, and student health insurance.
Great News: In an effort to make study abroad more accessible to you, St. John’s offers additional financial aid toward semester programs abroad (based on financial aid). Grants can reach in excess to $6,000, which puts a significant dent in the $8,290 Program Fee. To find out if you’re eligible for a Study Abroad Grant and how much it will be—look for a letter from the Office of Student Financial Services, sent home each semester, which compares the cost of study abroad with the cost of staying on the New York campus.
Also, we highly suggest you check out our scholarship listings and conduct personal scholarship research of your own. You may be surprised by the scholarship opportunities you’ll come across via a simple Google search.
