In the long-standing tradition of Jesuit education, Fordham University encourages study that enhances students’ appreciation of the world’s people and their interdependence. Our goal is to enable students to gain an understanding of other cultures and to encourage them to consider incorporating a global dimension into their chosen fields of study. As such, Fordham prides itself on its partnerships with programs that are committed to linguistic, cultural, and academic immersion and are integrated into the host communities. The University is also proud to offer one of the most extensive networks for foreign study of any major university. This network covers six regions (Africa, Europe, the Far East, Latin America, the Middle East, and Oceania), and the sponsored programs are wide-ranging and can accommodate various academic interests.
Fordham University currently maintains two centers abroad. Three of our semester-long programs and summer programs are offered at the Fordham London Centre. Fordham’s semester-long and summer programs in Spain are based at the Universidad de Granada.
Fordham University has exchange partnerships with universities worldwide. Studying as part of an exchange program allows you the highest level of academic immersion through direct enrollment in a host institution. These programs have been developed with the independent student in mind. Courses are often taught in the language of the host country and the majority of your classmates will be local or international students. Programs are offered in 18 different countries including Italy, France, Australia, and many more.
The International and Study Abroad Programs office also maintains a list of approved semester and year-long programs available through other universities and nonprofit organizations to supplement those offered by Fordham University and our exchange partners.
Staff in the International and Study Abroad Programs (ISAP) office are available to answer questions about how to plan for study abroad, how to apply for admission to sponsored programs, what programs cost per term, and what Fordham expects of participants.
