Arts & Sciences Students Abroad

Studying abroad offers the unique ability to experience different cultures while learning more about yourself in the process. The College of Arts and Sciences urges students to explore the option of studying abroad, whether it be a semester long program or a shorter opportunity in January or during the summer. 

Our Students' Experiences Abroad:

A&S Students in Ireland

Students who have studied or are studying abroad are encouraged to share their experiences. To enable this, we have created a study abroad photo gallery where students can post pictures from their travels. Students may also submit comments about their experiences to blogs or other social media sites about their travels. To learn more about our students travels follow the links below:

If you wish to share your experiences in this manner, please contact John Sauter at jps@niagara.edu. Student photos can be submitted via USB, CD, e-mail, or the web. Most galleries consist of approximately 20 pictures.

Considering Study Abroad?

A variety of opportunities to study in another country are available to Niagara  students. Some of the more popular programs are coordinated with NU faculty. For example, faculty from criminal justice, political science and international studies programs recently combined NU courses with a summer study abroad trip to Ireland. A number of Arts & Sciences students also participate in summer courses in China and Japan offered by the College of Business. Additional opportunities exist through Niagara University's partnerships with affiliated study abroad programs.

Students interested in studying abroad should discuss the options available to them with their advisor and NU's Study Abroad Office. The Study Abroad Office can help you figure out which program, either through NU or our affiliates, best suits your goals. Additionally, unaffiliated programs are possible, but may have implications to financial aid packages or scholarships and require withdrawal and re-admit paperwork.

Students studying abroad in the beginning of their senior years should complete a senior check before leaving. Due to typical delays for study abroad transcripts, studying abroad is not recommended during your final semester at Niagara University. 

Students who need additional support for selecting classes or determining how such classes fit into their degree are welcome to contact the Dean's Office at 716.286.8060. Some students find that their intended schedules change while abroad, so please get in touch with us if that occurs.

Support While Abroad

As access to technology, time changes, and other issues may affect communication while abroad, students who need assistance are encouraged to contact the Study Abroad Office or John Sauter in the Dean's Office at 716.286.8060 or jps@niagara.edu.

Students attending affiliated programs, may be advised and unlocked as normal. Students should contact their advisor by email to discuss classes and how to register online. Students experiencing problems reaching their adviser or registering online should contact John Sauter for assistance.
