Center for International Programs - Semester/Year Abroad

Health, Safety and Emergencies

The safety and well-being of our Study Abroad students is one of our top priorities. Once admitted to a Saint Joseph’s University study abroad program, we provide students with in-depth information on program location, instructions for how to prepare for a program and its locale, and tips and suggestions for how to remain safe and healthy throughout the study abroad experience abroad.
