Salve Regina faculty will lead 90 students to all corners of the globe this summer through short-term study abroad opportunities offered by the Office of International Programs. These popular study abroad and study away programs combine academics with hands-on learning, cultural engagement and exploration.
Summer offerings include international programs in Argentina, England, Ireland, Italy and New Zealand, along with two domestic programs – the cultural and historic preservation field school in South Carolina and the “Teach, Lead, Manage” program sailing from Newport to Martha’s Vineyard on the Oliver Hazard Perry.
In addition, during the fall 2015 semester, 16 students will study abroad through the University’s recognized programs in 11 countries including Jordan, South Korea and Thailand. Two students will attend Salve Regina’s exchange partner institutions, the University of Alicante in Spain and University College Cork in Ireland.
Study abroad at Salve Regina is open to students from all majors who are eager to internationalize their education and expand their worldview. To learn more about the variety of unique study abroad opportunities, students are encouraged to attend student-run information sessions, which are held in Drexel Hall at 4 p.m. Monday through Friday during the academic year. The Office of International Programs is also open throughout the summer, and staff will gladly speak with any students and families who have questions about studying abroad.
