Introduction to Study Abroad

Sacred Heart University Study Abroad Opportunities

The Office of Global Affairs (OGA) offers a variety of opportunities around the world for SHU and visiting students- with programming that supports a broad range of educational, professional, and personal objectives. There is no better way to learn about yourself, expand your worldview, acquire marketable skills, and develop the habits of mind, heart, and spirit that will prepare you to engage purposefully in a global world.

Program Types

We offer more than 100 programs in over 30 countries. Spend a semester, a year, a month, or two weeks abroad earning academic credit and gaining the kind of knowledge that a study abroad experience can provide. Courses completed on a SHU study abroad program may fulfill general education, elective, or major/minor credits, enabling you, regardless of your academic plan, to study abroad and graduate according to your schedule.

Preparatory Steps
