Study Abroad
While students feel at home in Worcester, they’re also hungry for opportunities to expand their horizons. Virtually every Holy Cross student who participates in one of our immersive study abroad experiences learns an essential lesson: Living and learning in a different culture is truly life-changing.


Why Study Abroad
Video: Holy Cross students describe study abroad as a life-changing experience, and a rare opportunity to live and study overseas.
Here are more reasons you should study abroad: 

  • Enhance your education by taking classes from another cultural point-of-view and choosing from subjects not offered at Holy Cross

  • Grow your tolerance for and appreciation of diversity

  • Develop cultural awareness

  • Acquire genuine fluency in another culture

  • Develop fluency in another language

  • Move beyond your personal limits

  • Become more independent
