Study Abroad Programs

Through our university's namesake (Mother Seton) and founder (Bishop Bayley) the transformational nature of international education is in the very bedrock of Seton Hall. Both Mother Seton's 1803 voyage to Italy as well as Bishop Bayley's 1842 journey through Europe were driving forces in their future vocation for Catholic education in America and led to the founding of our university. Now it's your turn to seize the incredible opportunity to immerse yourself in an international experience that will change your life forever.

Faculty Led Programs

These are short-term study abroad opportunities led by a Seton Hall professor, typically during the summer or embedded in the spring semester (Spring Break or May travel). Various departments sponsor study programs for a duration of days, weeks, or up to a month led by SHU faculty. These programs count as Seton Hall class credits.

Exchange Programs

Seton Hall University is committed to established formal exchange agreements with universities abroad. Exchange programs not only offer students a great opportunity to spend time at a foreign university, but also the opportunity to truly experience and become immersed in a new culture. For a list of available exchanges, please follow the link above. Participants in the exchange programs live the study abroad experience while paying Seton Hall tuition, which can be funded by currently held scholarships, loans and grants.
