A study tour is an academic course involving traditional classroom learning and experiential learning in an international setting. Tours provide students and faculty first-hand opportunities to investigate other cultures, enhancing academic development.

A Seton Hall faculty member will partner up with local guides to lead tours in small groups, allowing for maximum interaction and a meaningful travel experience. Numerous departments offer study tours for a duration of ten days, two weeks, or one month. Please see below for a list of upcoming study tours.

To apply for the programs below, please contact the faculty member leading the trip. All students will need to complete a study abroad application for the Office of International Programs after being accepted into the program by the professor.
