Study Abroad

We know there’s more to life and learning than what exists within the walls of our campus. That’s why we encourage our students to seize every opportunity to go out and find knowledge at its source. Stonehill students may participate in a number of study abroad programs worldwide, including full semester and shorter travel seminar options. Please note our study abroad partners are subject to change.

Travel Seminars

Travel Seminars are short-term study abroad programs offered during spring semesters. These programs feature 3-credit courses that include a travel component. The class and faculty will travel together for 7-10 days over Spring Break.

The seminars highlight a focused topic tied to a specific location, such as Irish literature in Ireland, or the response of Christian churches to Nazi persecution in Germany. Unlike typical courses, Travel Seminars do not meet regularly in the spring, but 2-3 times before travel and 1-2 times after travel.
