Study Abroad…Gain a Global Perspective
We live in an increasingly global community. As a result, students must prepare to work in a world that is diverse — in its people, cultures and thought. Understanding today's global community, a shared space where we depend on one another, is more than an ideal — it's a necessity. Seton Hall is perfectly positioned to prepare you to be a global leader. We offer a metropolitan location right outside of NYC, a close relationship with the United Nations, numerous internship opportunities, a diverse community with students from of all backgrounds and faiths and our students hail from all 50 states and over 70 countries.
We also believe out students learn by doing and provide many opportunities for students to meet the world outside of the classroom, with field trips, a semester in Washington DC, guest lecturers, service projects locally and internationally and of course study abroad which will provide you with a true global perspective to enhance your educational experience.
Study abroad is where leaders learn understanding and patience; to broaden their mind and spread their wings; to appreciate and respect other cultures; to build bridges and friendships; to love thy neighbor; and to see the world beyond their window. At Seton Hall, we believe you become a stronger leader through a global education.
Studying abroad is a profound, life-changing experience. It will expand your horizons and your world view; make you a better citizen and a more engaged learner. It will challenge and excite you and bring you to a deeper understanding of yourself and the world. At Seton Hall, we encourage all of our students to study abroad. In some programs, like those in our School of Diplomacy and International Relations, it is even a requirement.
At Seton Hall, you can choose from hundreds of locations around the world. Students can participate in a study abroad program as early as the summer between freshman and sophomore year. Many Seton Hall students study abroad early and some even study abroad multiple times during their college career.
Students can choose to participate in single-semester or year-long programs. Our faculty also lead many short-term programs over spring break, winter break and summer terms. We also offer exchange programs with partner universities as well as the opportunity to work with dozens of study abroad agencies, including Semester at Sea.
Our Division of Volunteer Efforts (DOVE) also organizes many community service trips abroad to places like Haiti and El Salvador. No matter what kind of program you’re looking for, our Office of International Programs will help you find the right one. And if we don’t offer the program you’re looking for, ask us — we’ll help you find it.
