Providing unforgettable learning opportunities in more than 30 countries.
At Syracuse University, international education is a tradition dating back to 1919, when SU's first students went abroad to Chungking, China. In 1959, the Syracuse in Italy program opened its doors in Florence to students of all majors and at every language level. The innovative program worked: Students learned language on site and the program became the model for SU centers abroad. Today, SU consistently ranks among the top-quality international education programs in the country. SU Abroad offers unforgettable learning opportunities in more than 30 countries—many or which include field study, internships, home stays, and a wide selection of classes in English. SU Abroad draws students from schools throughout the nation, and nearly half of SU students graduate with one or more international study experiences.
Syracuse currently operates eight overseas centers: in Beijing, Florence, Hong Kong, Istanbul, London, Madrid, Santiago, and Strasbourg. Through our World Partners, summer, and short-term programs, SU students have study abroad options in more than 20 additional countries. SU recently opened a regional council office in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, which works to enrich study abroad opportunities in the region, as well as with the Admissions Office to recruit students from the Middle East.
