International and Off-Campus Study

St. Lawrence has semester-long or year-long programs in 20 different countries, plus five off-campus programs in the U.S.

In addition, we offer several off-campus summer programs annually and travel components as part of regular semester programs. These vary, so consult the international study Web site often!

There are many ways to enrich your education by living in different cultures and communities across the globe. Typically, nearly half of each class studies abroad for a semester; most go either in the spring of their sophomore year, fall and/or spring of their junior year, or fall of their senior year.

First-year students may participate on the fall London FYP program. The London FYP allows students to study in one of the world's most dynamic cities in their first semester of college, while enjoying the full benefit of the FYP living-learning community, and connections to other St. Lawrence students. More information about the London FYP program and a link to the application form may be found here. The deadline for applications is April 21, 2017.

The University hopes to be able to offer a program for the first time in Bordeaux, France – on which first year students will be able to participate along with their St. Lawrence student peers. The 2018 pilot program in Bordeaux is being designed to offer first year students the opportunity to complete: their First Year Seminar (FYS) in English with the St. Lawrence University Program Director; a French language course at the appropriate level; and two content courses in a range of disciplines in either English or French.  Watch the CIIS web site for an official announcement and further information about this exciting new program!  Applications will be due by September 10, 2017.

St. Lawrence recommends off-campus study to all students but expects students to reflect thoughtfully on which program will allow them to enrich their particular learning interests. Application to off-campus programs is competitive and successful applicants must meet academic and other selection criteria. Each program has at least one prerequisite, so it is a good idea to learn about the opportunities early on and to begin to prepare for studying off campus by talking with your academic adviser and a staff member in the Center for International and Intercultural Studies (CIIS), located in Carnegie Hall, 315-229-5991 or email.
