Study Abroad

Stevenson University’s study abroad and study away programs provide an educational experience that engages you in personal, social, and intellectual growth by providing opportunities to explore and learn while studying beyond Stevenson’s campus. These experiences will foster understanding, appreciation, and respect for diversity and broaden your horizons by increasing your ability to live successfully in a dynamic global community.

Stevenson’s travel-based courses take place during the winterim semester in January and in the spring semester with travel during spring break, and can fulfill general education requirements and enhance studies in specific majors.

In 2023, Stevenson students will be traveling to Milan and Florence, Italy to study fashion design, to Spain to study math and art, and to London to study theatre and aesthetics.
