SJSU offers a range of Study Abroad programs to provide you with the global
experience you desire. We offer long-term programs lasting the academic year or a
semester, as well as short-term programs led by faculty or Summer School Abroad
with direct enrollment in an internationally recognized partner institution. Our
programs span the globe and the opportunities are limitless.
In the College of Professional and Global Education (CPGE), 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.
The department of Global Education and Initiatives will be offering domestic travel programs during the winter and spring breaks. Please check the GEI website throughout the year for details and updates about these offerings.CPGE 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.
