Featured Programs

As a Catholic university in the Vincentian tradition, St. John's prepares students for leadership in todays international society. They begin with Discover New York, a core course that uses the city as a "living textbook." Through the Global Passport Program, freshman and new transfer students can begin studying abroad in their first semester. St. John's also offers short term faculty-led program as well as several semester study aboard programs including the unique Discover the World program where students earn 15-18 credits studying in Italy, France and Spain in a single semester. Course-related volunteer activities allow all students to build confidence while making a difference. Campus Ministry and Student Life sponsor winter and spring service "plunges" in disadvantaged locations.
