Our Syracuse Abroad Centers and Featured Programs

Syracuse Abroad centers, extensions of the Syracuse University campus, are widely recognized for their focus on student success, the quality of their academic and cultural programming and their innovative experiential learning opportunities. The University operates centers in Florence, Italy; London, England; Madrid, Spain; Santiago, Chile; and Strasbourg, France, as well as a featured program in Central Europe based in Wroclaw, Poland. These programs specialize in a wide range of professional and liberal arts disciplines. Each is managed by a director, along with multicultural staff, delivering unparalleled academic programs and support services to students studying abroad. Staff abroad and on campus are dedicated to empowering students to reach their full potential abroad, both academically and personally.

Travel with Purpose: Syracuse Signature Seminars

With Syracuse Abroad, you may enroll in a Signature Seminar that marries travel with hands-on research, experiential learning, reflection and creative expression. These exciting and academically rigorous courses, which are among Syracuse Abroad’s distinguishing features, combine adventure and travel with academic purpose.

During a Signature Seminar, you visit multiple destinations and explore global issues through local perspectives. These seminars are run by highly experienced faculty and staff and are an opportunity to acclimate to life abroad, better understand your new home city in a broader regional context, and build new friendships and community.

World Ready. Career Ready: Internships, Volunteer and Research Opportunities

Syracuse Abroad programs include abundant opportunities to engage deeply with the topics you study and the communities you visit.

Regional field trips and field study are incorporated in many of your courses, and Syracuse University’s respected reputation gives Syracuse Abroad students an edge in securing internships and volunteer and research opportunities.

The friends I made, lessons learned, and incredible experiences I had exploring the country allowed me to build a new perspective on handling my daily life. It opened my mind to new opportunities and I saw that there is so much more that the world has to offer.
