Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru AFRICA EUROPE MIDDLE EAST ASIA OCEANIA Who goes abroad? Each year, nearly 140 St. Norbert students study abroad! Roughly 30% of each graduating class studies abroad for a semester or more. SNC Study Abroad offers programs suited to students in every field of study. Study abroad is required for the following majors:
Business Administration (Global Concentration)
International Business & Language Area Studies
International Studies
Modern Languages & Literatures (French, German, and Spanish) You do not need to know a foreign language to study abroad. Over the past 10 years, 70% of SNC students took their coursework in English. Study abroad in an English-speaking country
like Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, or the UK ... ... or on an English-language program
in the Czech Republic, Egypt, Italy, or the Netherlands. Some of our programs have a language proficiency requirement. France, Germany, Latin America, Japan, and Spain Second semester sophomores through second seniors may study abroad. Academics Do students graduate on time if they study abroad? Yes, of course! Students work closely with a study abroad advisor throughout the process. How many credits do students take abroad? Most students usually take 15 to 16 credits abroad, and oftentimes satisfy five or more requirements. What courses do students take abroad? Students typically fulfill requirements for the General Education Program, their major(s), and their minor(s). What about grades? Students receive transfer credit if they earn the equivalent of a "C" or higher in their courses. The grades that students earn abroad are not calculated into their SNC GPA, nor do they appear on the SNC transcript. The Basics Program Types What types of study abroad programs are available? Traditional Hybrid Field-Based Experiential Students take 4 or more courses at a traditional university or program site. Students take 3 or 4 courses and a credit-bearing internship or service-learning course. Students focus on a thematic seminar, learn the host country's language, and conduct their own research or engage in an internship. Logistics Accommodations Housing: Each program offers a different housing option - residence hall, apartment, or host family. Meals: Some programs include a meal plan, while others do not. Research the study abroad programs online to find one that meets your academic and personal needs and interests.
