Study Abroad & Internship Programs

Over the past decade, the number of U.S. students studying abroad has more than doubled. At Stonehill, nearly 40% of the Class of 2013 spent at least one semester abroad.

Why Go Abroad?

There are several compelling ways that you may enhance your academic experience and increase your professional capital with an experience abroad.

  • Immerse yourself in another culture, perhaps another language, and improve your intercultural proficiency.
  • Take courses which can be better comprehended in a particular location (e.g., art history in Florence or Irish government in Galway).
  • Challenge yourself to develop leadership, adaptability, self-reliance, and critical thinking skills that will strengthen your career prospects.
  • Travel extensively and cheaply during class holidays and before/after your studies.

 

“You never really hear of people who regret going abroad, but you do hear about people who regret not going. No matter what, studying abroad allows you to learn something about yourself and a new culture at the same time.”
Sarah Kozsan '14, France
