You’ve got to know your world before you can change it.

That's why the Suffolk student experience has a purposeful global spin. Suffolk students become truly worldly thinkers—ones with insights that span cultures and time zones. This global awareness sparks creativity, innovation, and a deep empathy for their fellow humans. These are the skills they’ll draw upon as they solve tomorrow’s challenges and maximize tomorrow’s opportunities.

But they don’t just study the world. Our students experience it for themselves.

Studying Abroad

Suffolk students learn to think in new ways, adapt to new cultures, and increase their self-confidence at their choice of study abroad programs the world over. We offer study abroad opportunities with our 50+ partner universities in more than 30 countries. We make experiencing the world easier for our students—no matter their majors—and help them transition back to Boston seamlessly.

Traveling With Purpose

If students want to serve communities abroad, our short-term programs show them the world. Our Center for Community Engagement leads service trips during our winter and spring breaks, while students venture to Barbados with the Journey Leadership Program.

Our Global Community in Boston
