Current Global Studies Programs
Faculty-led Study Abroad Programs
Unlike most colleges, St. Joseph's College has valued study abroad by funding student study abroad experiences in faculty-led and/or semester long programs. This has made study abroad accessible to all students. St. Joseph's College scholarships apply to tuition abroad. The college also grants a significant number of $500-$2,000 stipends for faculty-led programs.
Explore the world for a week, a summer, a semester or an entire year. The opportunities are endless.

"I studied abroad over the summer with our school's 'Oxford Experience.' Going to Oxford, and exploring all over England was the most eye opening and incredible experiences of my life. I not only had the chance to live, and study in one of the most historical universities in the world, but I got to push my boundaries and expand my horizons day in and day out. I recommend every student look into studying abroad."
Our study abroad programs have been put on hold but we hope to reschedule them soon.
