Study Abroad

Locally educated. Globally inspired.


Make Close Friends in Faraway Places

Study abroad is a core part of the Queens experience. We believe in a global perspective so much that we provide traditional undergraduate students with a fund to use towards an international experience. 

Study abroad is about education as much as travel: 95% of students who studied abroad found a job within 12 months of graduation, a testament to the self-confidence and skills gained by living and learning in another country.

Types of Programs

Short-Term, Faculty-Led Study Programs

These are our most popular programs. You’ll travel about 10-14 days, traveling with classmates and your professor to a region that builds upon a semester of study. You may study biodiversity in Ecuador, British literature in London, or art history in Florence.

Language Immersion

Increase your language proficiency with a language immersion program. You’ll live in another country for four weeks, gaining cultural immersion and speaking the native language.

Semester Abroad

Dive deeper into another culture. We’re a member of the International Student Exchange Program, which is a network of 300 universities in over 50 countries. You’ll have a world of options to explore for a semester of study. You can also spend a summer studying business in France and Shanghai.

International Internships

All of our traditional undergrads do internships, and some choose to do theirs overseas. We have partnerships that enable us to offer affordable, professionally immersive internships during which you work abroad and even live with a local family. You can apply for scholarships to help offset the cost, if needed.

Summer Business Programs

Students majoring in business, political science, or international studies may participate in summer programs offered through our partnerships with ESSCA and EM Strasbourg, two premier business schools in France. Both schools offer a unique perspective on global business and politics.

"To have [study abroad] finances already taken care of in my tuition allowed me to take advantage of the international internship program. Studying abroad is something every Queens student looks forward to."
