Study Abroad & Away

Our Mission

Study Abroad & Away at Jacksonville University seeks to promote global learning by exposing students and faculty to other countries, cultures, and languages. We seek to engage students and faculty in global issues and to issues of U.S. relations with the rest of the world.

Jacksonville University offers a variety of study abroad opportunities to every type of student. Our programs span the world and include core courses that apply to any degree at JU. Additionally, we encourage experiential learning by promoting service and internship opportunities abroad. 

Students can choose to study abroad & away during any term: fall or spring semester, fall break, spring break, and summer. A popular way to travel abroad is through JU Faculty-Led programs, which travel with JU peers and professors as a group. Interested students also have the exciting opportunity to earn JU credit at either of our partner institutions: the Sant'Anna Institute in Sorrento, Italy and the Barcelona School for International Studies in Barcelona, Spain.
