Graduate Students


For Graduate Students

The international experiences available to graduate students can be quite different from undergraduate study abroad programs.  Whether the time you intend to spend abroad is closely linked to your future career or serves as a basis for deeper graduate research, the Office of Study Abroad will work closely with you to help facilitate your experience abroad.

As a graduate student at the University of St. Thomas, you will find intercultural and international topics and texts integrated throughout your degree. You may have studied abroad as an undergraduate, or wish you taken the opportunity. In many of our graduate programs, studying abroad is an option, especially on a short-term program.

Over 120 St. Thomas graduate students studied abroad in 2014-2015, reflecting an increasing interest in international opportunities.

Why Study Abroad?

  • Enhance your current career or future doctoral school opportunities.
  • Gain insight and appreciation for other countries and cultures.
  • Better understand U.S. culture in a comparative context.
  • Continue to prepare yourself for the global marketplace.

Some of your options include:

  • Business
    The Opus College of Business offers a variety of graduate study abroad programs.
  • Catholic Studies
    Study abroad in Rome for a semester.
  • Law
