Choosing a Program
Are you overwhelmed with all of the options? Are you confused about where and how to start? There are a lot of things to consider as you begin looking for a program that meets your academic and personal needs. The following are some things you should think about before moving forward:
- How long do you want to study abroad-an academic year, a semester or for a short term?
- Do you want to study in English or another language?
- Is there a particular subject you want to study while abroad?
- Are there major, minor or core requirements you want to fulfill?
- Would you like to live in a residence hall, an apartment or with a family?
- Is cost an issue? Are you flexible about where you will go if the cost is lower?
For Majors and Minors
St. Thomas strives to offer an off-campus study option to students in all academic areas. With appropriate planning, it is possible for you to study abroad regardless of your major. The Major Advising Sheets below are meant as a tool for students to investigate Study Abroad and off-campus opportunities. International Education staff have worked closed with these academic departments. Watch for more advising resources in the future:
- Communication and Journalism
- Electrical Engineering
- Individual Study
- International Business
- Justice and Peace Studies
- Mechanical Engineering
- Political Science
- Women's Studies
If your major is not listed, make an appointment with a peer advisor or a Study Abroad Advisor to research programs that could provide courses which fulfill other major/minor requirements. Call 651-962-6450 to set up a meeting.
