SCU Multicultural Center's annual Global Village Festival celebrates our diverse campus with food, activities, and performances.



At Santa Clara, you’ll find a global perspective that knows no bounds.

As an SCU student you'll experience a global education. SCU students learn from studying abroad and building relationships with local communities. SCU faculty pursue research abroad and are sought after global experts who consult with overseas companies, nonprofits and governments.

Study or Research Abroad

Opportunities to learn abroad are integrated into all majors and fields or study. SCU offers a range of programs abroad that enable you to pursue research-orientated internships or professional experiences, intensive language study, education with locals, and engage in the community abroad. You'll gain firsthand experience among diverse people and diverse cultures of the world.

Our Global Campus

SCU’s global reach begins on campus. Our large international population is a vital part of our community, which results in a campus that is worldly, culturally fluent, and diverse.

We believe that our international students make SCU a more interesting place to study. Students from every corner of the world choose SCU for many of the same reasons U.S. students do: our Silicon Valley location, the high quality of our research and academics, and our Jesuit Catholic foundation.
