Study Abroad

The World is Calling. When Will You Answer?
Spend a week, a few weeks, a semester, or even a year studying abroad while earning credit towards your degree. Fontbonne offers a variety of study abroad programs to choose from, and because you can use your Federal financial aid and personal student loans, study abroad is more affordable than you may think.

    Need a reason?

    How about your career? A recent government survey concluded that “Graduates who have studied abroad, or participated in professional work experiences in other countries, will have a distinct advantage in the job market.” Study abroad experience on your resume demonstrates your independence, self-confidence, and experience in the global marketplace.

    Need another?

    How about a life changing experience you’ll never forget? Study abroad can be all that and more. See the world, explore other cultures, and meet new people, all for college credit.
