Study Abroad

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 help you gain an understanding of other cultures and to encourage you to consider incorporating a global dimension into your chosen field of study by offering a broad range of study abroad programs.

Semester-long and summer programs in business, arts, and sciences, as well as internship placements, are offered at the Fordham London Centre. Fordham's study abroad programs in Granada, Spain, are based in one of the most beautiful and historic cities of Andalucia. Courses in English or Spanish enable students to fully immerse themselves in Spanish language and culture or begin their study of the Spanish language. A broad range of major, minor, and core courses are offered at both program sites.

Fordham University has exchange partnerships with universities in 18 countries around the world. Studying abroad as part of an exchange program allows you the highest level of academic and cultural immersion through direct enrollment at one of our partner schools. Courses are often taught in the language of the host country and the majority of your classmates will be local or international students.

The International and Study Abroad Programs (ISAP) 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. Many of these programs are small and focused on a particular area of study.

Applications to study abroad are completed in the Study Abroad Portal and typically open almost one year in advance of when you wish to go abroad, so start early. Staff in the International and Study Abroad Programs office are available to answer any questions you might have and look forward to working with you to help make the world your classroom!
