Students at St. John's University have the opportunity to study abroad on a broad range of short-term programs, with options available for most majors at both the graduate and undergraduate level. Our winter and summer "stand-alone" faculty-directed programs are fully contained between the fall and spring academic semesters—you’ll earn academic credit in programs that range from 10 days to just over a month during the winter intersession or summer.
St. John's also offers a unique range of spring and fall programs abroad that spend an academic semester in New York or online and include travel as a required component of the class before, during, or after the academic semester. These "embedded" faculty-directed programs offer St. John's students an incredible opportunity to prepare for and engage in international education through a full semester’s coursework.
OIE offers a number of short-term study abroad options connected to spring courses in Queens. Click on a program title below to be taken to the online brochure for more information and the program application.
At St. John’s, we push the envelope in order to help our students achieve a truly global education... and right from day one!
The Global Passport program offers incoming students a chance to “internationalize” their academic experience from their very first days at St. John’s, one of the few universities to have a program designed specifically for our first-year students! Through the program, students fulfill one of their core requirements in a completely innovative & comparative way, while studying with top professors who will incorporate the historic and cultural treasures of Rome, Paris and New York into their courses in order to bring the curriculum alive. The semester in New York is followed by one week at either our Paris or Rome locations.
Best of all, St. John's wants this opportunity to be affordable to all new freshmen and transfer students in their first year. We subsidize the Global Passport program to keep the student program fee at just $750, plus the cost of round-trip airfare.
