Study Abroad in Eastern Europe

Rebecca Skaff, a junior communications major, visited the cobblestone streets, historic castles and picturesque lakes of Eastern Europe during UST study abroad in summer 2013. She traveled to Prague, Czech Republic; Bratislava, Slovakia; and Budapest, Hungary, taking two St. Thomas classes. 

“Though they were intense, the classes were well put together and the excursions in each country were easily related,” Skaff said. “Personally, this trip changed a lot for me. I met new friends, took some crazy adventures, and made memories that I will never forget.”

China Enriches UST Students’ Study

Ten UST students traveled to Shanghai and Beijing as part of the study abroad trip to the People's Republic of China. Dr. Jon Taylor, chair of Department of Political Science, led the students and taught a course on comparative public administration.

Study Abroad
University of St. Thomas derives many advantages from being located in a city with a strong international focus. The University is constantly increasing opportunities for its students to develop a global perspective. Knowledge of different peoples and cultures through study and internships in foreign countries is valuable preparation for participating in the emerging global economy and culture.

As many as 10 percent of UST’s full-time undergraduate students study abroad annually. UST offers students a variety of ways to study outside of the United States on an individual, semester-long basis. This may be done through student exchange with sister universities or on a non-exchange basis elsewhere.

UST also offers group study abroad programs by UST faculty during winter break and the summer session. Popular past locations include the following countries: Ireland, England, Italy, Spain, France, China, Taiwan, Greece, Israel, Czech Republic, Hungary, Chile and Jamaica. Part-time and graduate students are also eligible to participate in these programs.
