Study Abroad

Study Beyond at St. Thomas Aquinas College

Travel and international study give you once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to enhance classroom learning with people, places and customs across the country and around the world. And you can earn college credit. Study architecture in Rome. Hone your Spanish in Nicaragua. Explore the Galapagos Islands while studying ecology. Whatever you do and wherever you go, studying beyond the classroom will transform the way you look at and succeed in this increasingly intimate world.

Study Beyond Classroom Programs

STAC’s “study beyond” courses combine classroom learning and a one-week trip to an international or domestic destination during the academic semester. Our students regularly participate in courses that take them to Nicaragua and the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota.

Study Beyond Partnership Programs

Although options and opportunities for studying abroad are far-reaching, past students have immensely enjoyed programs offered through the Lower Hudson Valley Catholic College and University Consortium, especially St. John’s University
