Fordham College at Lincoln Center encourages qualified students who have enthusiasm about the world beyond the U.S. to study for a semester or an academic year in a foreign country. This study normally takes place during their junior year (and never during their final semester). Fordham has consortia and affiliation agreements with many schools and organizations that offer opportunities to study abroad. Programs are available in over 50 countries and on 6 continents. Students interested in studying abroad should have a well-reasoned academic purpose and appropriate preparation. It is important to contact the Office of International & Study Abroad Programs well in advance of the planned period of study. All programs of study abroad must be approved in advance through this office. Students applying for study abroad must have a GPA of at least 3.0 and a clear disciplinary record. The Fordham Core Curriculum (with the exception of the Senior Values Seminar, Global Studies, and Pluralism) must be completed before the period of study abroad begins. Study abroad is an excellent way for students to gain an understanding of other cultures and to incorporate a global dimension into their chosen field of study.
