Study Abroad Opportunities

The reasons for studying abroad are as varied as the students who choose this academic adventure. Assumption College provides students with a variety of opportunities to experience different cultures, including our campus in Rome, Italy.

Assumption College Students are Globetrotters

Assumption College students are globetrotters. They’ve studied in more than 20 countries in Europe, Asia, North and South America, Australia and Africa. Some have been awarded prestigious Fulbright Scholarships which empower new graduates to spend between nine and 10-months in a foreign country implementing a research project or teaching English while studying part-time and traveling the host country and surrounding areas.

The benefits of studying abroad?

  • Broaden your undergraduate education with international perspectives
  • Gain a deeper, richer understanding of your own cultural identity
  • Become a true citizen of the world.

The College offers you a number of options and opportunities to immerse yourself in another culture.

  • Semester study abroad: Assumption is very supportive of students studying abroad. In fact, a student’s financial aid award is applied to formal, approved study abroad programs in more than 50 locations around the globe. For those majoring in subjects with an explicit international focus – such as a foreign language, global studies, or international business, studying abroad is highly recommended, although not required.
  • Short-term academic travel: A number of courses and faculty at Assumption offer opportunities to travel abroad for one or two weeks. These visits take place during school breaks and students can choose whether or not to participate. In some cases, Assumption partially underwrites the cost of the trip. Students have visited England, Ireland, France and Eastern Europe to name a few places they have visited.

  • Postgraduate study abroad: Assumption works closely with students to prepare their applications for prestigious post-graduate programs like the Fulbright Scholarship.

Internships Abroad

Business Studies majors and minors can enhance their program of studies with extended travel abroad, acquiring valuable international business experience, and sharpening language skills. Often students are able to earn money teaching English, while learning a foreign language, such as in Japan.
