Study Abroad

​Imagine the world differently

Almost half of Syracuse students study abroad. Why? Because at their core, Syracuse students are curious. 

They seek opportunities to understand different cultures and extend the classroom to enrich their education. They also know that Syracuse University has one of the longest running—and most highly ranked—study abroad programs in the nation. You can choose from over 100 different programs within 60 countries, and engage in internships, Signature Seminars, language study, homestay, and community engagement projects.

Courses are available in Asia, Australia, Europe, Latin America, and the Caribbean.

Summer Programs

Summer study is about flexibility. Explore an interest that may not be part of your major, catch up on credits, and do it all in a country that you've always been curious about. Syracuse offers a vast array of summer classes in Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, and the Middle East.
