Promoting JusticeStudy abroad/exchange

Study-abroad programs have become almost commonplace for college students, especially at private colleges and universities, but the St. Catherine approach has a distinctive spin.

We are committed to helping you integrate an international experience into your personal, academic and career goals. We offer a diverse more than 150 study abroad programs — semester, yearlong, January and summer options — in more than 50 countries.

Currently, about 22 percent of the University's students study off campus — in countries such as Italy, Argentina, Japan, India, Switzerland and New Zealand.
