Study Abroad - Creating Pathways that Refect Well on Your Major Course of Study

Fairfield has been developing quality programming abroad for over 30 years. We provide quality full-service academic programs abroad for Fairfield credit and grade. Each site provides robust curricular offerings and were chosen for its ability to provide a full array of academic disciplines and its capacity to engage students beyond the classroom through service projects, field learning, for-credit internships and facilitated cultural engagement. We are pleased to work with the following institutions as our strategic partners abroad:

In addition, Fairfield University partners with a select group of university and provider programs. Open to Fairfield Students, these programs were selected for their academic compatibility and geographic locations.
