With 100 places to study in 60 countries, it’s no wonder how Syracuse University Study Abroad Program consistently ranks among the highest-quality study abroad programs in the country.

Syracuse University is proud of its home in the heart of New York State for nearly 150 years but also in its successful efforts to make a global footprint. The university works with accredited world partners to provide both short term, long term, and summer study abroad trips. Discovery programs are also unique to Syracuse. The detail in each program is what makes them stand out from the rest.

Syracuse University Study Abroad Programs

With a commitment to molding the next generation of global scholars and leaders, Syracuse University engages in preparing students for the worldly challenges outside of New York both on campus and abroad. Syracuse study abroad programs send students to Beijing, Florence, Istanbul, London, Hong Kong, Madrid, Santiago, Strasbourg, and Central Europe.


World Partners

In order to be able to offer as many options in study abroad programs and locations, Syracuse works with World Partner programs to provide over 60 different institutions in cities across the world for students to choose from.

Students who choose World Partner programs are typically independent and driven. This road to study abroad is less of a hand guide as the Discovery programs are, though that should not be seen as a negative thing. These students are typically looking for their own personalize experiences away from home. Past students have gone to practice Hebrew in Israel and to study biodiversity in Madagascar.

Other World Partner programs send students across the world. These programs send Syracuse students to Africa, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Russia, Latin America, the Caribbean, Middle East and North America as well as to the sea for the SEA semester program.

Discovery Programs: Highlight City, Florence

Since its first trip set sail in 2007 the Discovery Florence program continues to grow year after year. As the birthplace of the Renaissance, Florence is an ideal place to start the humanities and art courses. Past Discovery Florence courses have included Italian Art and Society, Liberty and Power from the Ancient World to Modernity, and Italian 101.

Discovering Florence is a program that is set up for success. The program includes a home stay with an Italian family to experience a true cultural immersion. Other benefits to living with an Italian family is to be able to practice the Italian language as well as to understand the culture on a first-hand basis. Did we mention that good homemade food and good wine are an important part of this culture?

The first weekend in Florence is the “Full Immersion Weekend”. Instead of allowing students to explore on their own, they spend time with their host family. Learning the family as well as the area the student will reside in the beautiful city of Florence. The first weekend has proven to be invaluable to students and host families to get comfortable with one another. As well as to give the student some insight about Florence from a native’s perspective.
