Study abroad opens up the world to St. John's students. For as little as $750, first-year students can participate in our Global Passport program and experience Paris or Rome for one week from the comfort (and safety!) of a St. John’s campus abroad. But our commitment to our Global Mission continues well beyond the first year, with semester opportunities in Paris and Rome; a nationally unique three-country semester program traveling to Limerick, Paris and Rome; exchange partners around the world; and a rotation of short-term programs in a range of majors throughout the calendar year.

The Office of International Education will present on the range of options for St. John’s students, including information on safety, academics, financial aid and scholarships. We can't wait to share the details!
