Fifty-two students representing nearly every major at the University will head overseas to study in six different countries this summer.

The majority are taking part in three distinct programs offered by Salve Regina. The largest group is headed to one of the University’s oldest summer program offerings in Oxford, England with Dr. Stephen Trainor and Dr. William Leeman. Students will take two courses from a menu of offerings, including Literature of Oxford with Trainor and Anglo-American Relations After 1776 with Leeman. All courses utilize the cities of Oxford and London and the surrounding region to bring the course content to life.

A second group is headed to County Donegal in Ireland with nursing faculty Jackie Janicki and Julie L’Europa. The students will explore Irish culture and concepts of conflict resolution and build an understanding of the political, social and health consequences of conflict.

Five students are headed to Salve Regina’s newest summer offering – an eight-week immersion program in the Dominican Republic. Through homestays with local families and two courses on the Hispanic Caribbean as well as community engagement theory, students will prepare themselves to work in one of three community organizations supporting the disadvantaged populations of Santiago.

The remaining students are headed to Argentina, France and Italy to programs offered by the American Institute for Foreign Study, one of Salve Regina’s partner program providers.
