Live and study for a semester in Gaming, Austria, just a short and
enjoyable train ride from Rome, Prague, Avignon, and the whole of
Europe. Spend a semester studying the Medieval period in Oxford,
England. Or, if you’d like, work with our faculty to craft your own
study abroad experience at many universities in many other countries.
Wherever you go, you will be forever changed by the study abroad experiences Franciscan University has to offer.
Our largest and very popular study abroad program, the Austria
program brings 150-200 Franciscan students to the center of Europe every
semester. Students participating in this program live and learn in a
14th-century former Carthusian monastery. Classes are taught in English
by Franciscan University professors, and students studying in the German
Bachelor’s Degree Program will have ample opportunities to immerse
themselves in the German language. Weekly travel opportunities make the
grand heritage of Western civilization—especially of our Catholic
faith—come alive. It is an experience our students and alumni talk about
for the rest of their lives. Explore the Austria pages to learn more about the Study in Austria opportunity. >>
If your academic interests include studying the Medieval,
Renaissance, and Early Modern periods, we offer semester experiences at
the Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies at Oxford University in
England. This opportunity is ideal for those enrolled in the English
Bachelor’s Degree Program. Contact Dr. John Holmes in the English Department to inquire. >>
Through the cooperation of our faculty members and International
Studies Abroad, students are able to pursue study abroad programs in
many other countries, pursuing a variety of academic interests, while
taking in the local culture. The opportunities abound, but be sure to
discuss any desired study abroad opportunity with appropriate faculty
members and the registrar before you start making any plans. Please
visit our study abroad sponsor’s website to learn more about the numerous opportunities available.
Your life at Franciscan begins here.
