“A life-changing experience.” That is a common remark from our students upon returning from studying abroad. Who wouldn’t be interested in something similar? Scranton has connections to programs across the globe, helping students in nearly every major study abroad. Since 2005, our students have studied in 41 countries. In many cases, their studies have included internships and community service.

    1. Why am I doing this?
    2. What do I want to get out of this experience?
    3. What is the best way of getting what I want?

      3. Finances
      4. Type of Study Abroad Program

Studying abroad changed my life in so many ways, but I'm most proud of how it taught me to be appreciative of other cultures. I studied in Milan, Italy for a full semester and traveled all throughout Europe. The Jesuit mission of providing a transformative education came into play - I was able to learn, grow as a person, try new things and make lifelong connections.
