Graduate Study Abroad Programs

International experience as a graduate student is a valuable opportunity to add a global perspective to career knowledge or research. 

 Graduate students often find a term overseas enhances their global competency – strengthening their ability to recognize their own and others’ perspectives, furthering an ability to communicate cross-culturally, and enhancing a grasp of their field within U.S. culture and internationally. 

As a graduate student at the University of St. Thomas, intercultural and international topics and texts are integrated throughout your degree. Capitalize on that foundation by pursuing a portion of your studies in a new environment.
