We are currently accepting applications for the following study abroad programs:

    • Please note: Per the Semester Abroad Policy, a limited number of completed applications will be approved for Spring 2022 Semester Abroad on a first-come, first serve basis. Early applications are strongly encouraged, as space is limited!

We understand the impact COVID-19 has had on travel worldwide, and know that these changes make this year’s application cycles different than years past. We hold our students’ health and safety as our top priority, and will continue to monitor COVID-19 and related conditions for travel in the upcoming months. Saint Joseph’s University is currently reviewing the status of spring 2022 study abroad. Students are advised not to make any non-refundable payments for their study abroad experience until a University update for their term of travel is provided.  Visit our COVID-19 and Study Abroad FAQ to view more detailed information.

The Jesuit mission knows no borders, and Saint Joseph's University, as a Jesuit institution, encourages students and faculty to take a truly global view of their opportunities and their responsibilities.  We strive to equip with the knowledge and training that will enable them to effectively engage with and respond to people and cultures from all parts of the world; and to use their talents towards the betterment of others.
The Center for International Programs (CIP) at Saint Joseph's University is strongly committed to internationalization and globalization, both on our campus and elsewhere. We provide information and services to students who wish to study abroad on a short-term or long-term academic program.  We are also responsible for the implementation of new international education initiatives and the support of the University's International Travel Policy.
