Study Abroad

Exposure to and familiarity with diverse cultures is a key component of the lifelong commitment to intellectual inquiry and social justice that Sacred Heart challenges all of its students to embrace. For Honors students in particular, participation in the Study Abroad program is a great way to add depth to their studies. Students may choose from a traditional semester-long opportunity, or an intensive month-long experience in May.
