With student safety at the core of all we do, Saint Anselm has suspended semester-long study abroad for the Academic Year 2021-2022. Short-term (J-term, May, summer) programs, along with our popular Global Seminars will continue to be offered to take your Anselmian experience global.
Take Your Anselmian Experience Global
“In the 21st century, a quality education is an international education.”
- Former US Secretary of Education Arne Duncan
Saint Anselm College is committed to students broadening their education and worldview through global experiences. Students who engage in both in-country and remote global experiences gain greater intercultural awareness, a stronger understanding of complex global issues, and an increased sense of self and maturity. Critical skills developed and honed include communication, problem-solving/critical thinking, digital competencies and global fluency -- attributes listed in the top 8 competencies most desired by employers as determined by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE).
The College's Office of International Programs provides comprehensive advising and guidance to students planning short-term educational experiences, virtual global, and traditional in-country options. Offering more than 65 programs for academics, service-learning, volunteering and internships -- we have a program that will meet your needs (and dreams!). Students have studied marine biology on the Great Barrier Reef, art history in the museums of Florence, finance in London, language in Madrid, and international relations in Shanghai, China, just to name a few.
Through our Orvieto, Italy Programs, students spend the spring semester abroad with fellow Anselmians exploring topics (taught in English) ranging from classics, history, art and architecture, to Italian culture, politics, and theology.
Credit-bearing programs must be pre-approved. [Note: Orvieto program directors approve students for that particular program. For specifics on the Orvieto program, please visit the Orvieto program page.] If you are interested in what opportunities are available, please schedule an appointment with Jane Bjerklie-Barry, Director for Study Abroad.
