In today’s world, having an international perspective and cross-cultural understanding are crucial to your success as an individual and as a professional. Once thought of as educational enrichment, the international experience provided by study abroad is now viewed as desirable experience sought after by many employers and an essential part of the Saint Vincent College undergraduate experience.
A study abroad experience can give you the opportunity to participate in the life of another culture while also learning more about your own. Let the world be your classroom as you expand your world view, develop skills from a different learning environment, and become proficient in a foreign language. In addition to earning credits toward your degree, your experiences abroad will make you more independent and self-confident, enable you to become proficient in a foreign language, and provide you with the skills employers are seeking.

Students can earn credits towards core requirements, major requirements, language requirements, elective credits or complete an international internship. Program length varies from several weeks to the entire summer.
