Study Abroad

SJSU offers a range of Study Abroad programs for a single semester or the academic year. Programs are available at over 250 universities in 55 different countries. You can find the program that is right for you by searching by region, program type, or major. 

In the College of International and Extended Studies (CIES), we understand the importance of studying abroad. Due to current immigration policies, DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) students may substitute international experiences outside the country with domestic immersion experiences within the United States. This upcoming winter and spring break there will be three domestic cross-cultural trips offered through Global Education and Initiatives. Over winter break you can travel to New York City or New Orleans to experience the unique culture and history of these vibrant cities and over spring break the GEI will run a trip to the Grand Canyon, where you can experience several national parks and interact with and learn about the history and culture of the Navajo Nation. Please visit GEI's website in mid-September for more information on these domestic opportunities ( CIES staff will continue working with the Colleges and departments to identify additional "study-abroad-at-home" experiences within the U.S.

On campus, there are many opportunities to engage in intercultural experiences including participation in the Global Student Network (GSN) student organization, living at the International House, pursuing recognition of your international involvement through the Global Leadership Advancement Center (GLAC), attending weekly Coffee Hours, and volunteering in the community locally. To learn more about domestic cross-cultural trips, please e-mail GEI.
