Why Study Abroad at SCU

Study Abroad at SCU is not a quarter off, but instead allows you to gain a Global perspective on your major, minor, and core academics.  Our Jesuit education is also about helping you foster your professional and personal goals, and utilizing your Study Abroad program as a way to attain those goals.

FIVE REASONS TO STUDY ABROAD

FIVE WAYS TO ENGAGE ABROAD

In addition to focusing on Academics Abroad, Santa Clara wants you to develop your intercultural communication skills.  The best way to do this is to get involved while abroad.  There are a lot of different ways to be involved in your home community abroad.

So, why Study Abroad?  Because by taking advantage of RIISE opportunities (Research, Internship or Professional Experience, Intensive Language, Study With Locals, and Engagement in Community or Service Learning), we believe Study Abroad students RIISE above the rest.
