Study Abroad Ram

Study abroad at Fordham is part of a long-standing tradition of Jesuit education that seeks to enhance students’ understanding of the world’s peoples and their interdependence.

Our goal is to help students gain an understanding of other cultures and to incorporate a global dimension to their chosen fields of study. Fordham prides itself in offering its students one of the most extensive networks for foreign study of any major university.

Please stop by our offices—the ISAP staff looks forward to working with you and to offering the advising and services you will need to get the most out of your experience abroad.

These programs made her passionate about ensuring access to quality and transformative experiential and study abroad experiences regardless of program length.
