Study Abroad

Discover the World with Creighton.

Student at Cliffs of Moher

Every year, more than 500 Creighton students pack their bags to live, learn, and serve all over the globe as part of our study abroad programs. The Dominican Republic, Hong Kong, Germany, Scotland, Egypt, Australia — the list goes on and on. In fact, there are over 200 programs to choose from that allow you to bring your Creighton aid with you! If that isn’t enough, our Global Engagement Office (GEO) works with students individually to find them a program that is the best fit for them.

Our students have completed service projects on subsistence farms in the Dominican Republic and fine-tuned mathematical proofs while hiking around Loch Ness. They’ve debated the finer points of Kant’s philosophy in China and stood in awe looking up at the Pyramids.


Creighton Global Scholars Program

Creighton also offers the Global Scholars Program, a unique four-year educational and professional development program that includes a minimum of four international experiences throughout your time at Creighton.

What Students Are Saying

 

What is something you gained from the experience?
I gained a ton from my study abroad experience: language skills, confidence, a sense of adventure and a desire to want to meet new people and explore new places. Something that was unique to Encuentro specifically was the ability to feel confident using and speaking Spanish and the desire to want to participate in more service and community living opportunities in the future.

What advice do you have for future students considering study abroad?
If you’re nervous about missing out on time here in Omaha and at Creighton, that’s totally normal and understandable. Everyone feels that to a certain degree! However, I would challenge you to think about the experience that you are missing out on if you don’t go abroad – Omaha and Creighton are always here to welcome you back with open arms; challenge yourself and go see what all is waiting out there for you in this world!

- Kayla (studied in the Dominican Republic)


 

What is something you gained from the experience?
In Morocco I learned how to adapt to a new culture and environment radically different from that of the United States.

What advice do you have for future students considering study abroad?
Everyone should study abroad! Pick a place that is unique and you can have experiences you may never get again in your life.

- Conor (studied in Morocco)


 

What is something you gained from the experience?
I became more confident in myself and I found lifelong friends.

What advice do you have for future students considering study abroad?
I would make sure to keep an open mind while you go abroad and be willing to try new things because it’ll be the best decision of your life.

- Hannah (studied in France) 


 

Why did you decide to study abroad?
Cliché, but I wanted to see the world. It’s so much bigger than Creighton and the suburbs of Minnesota that I grew up in and wanted to see more of what’s out there.

What is something you gained from the experience?
Through the Limerick Practicum course, I got to work with the EMTs in Limerick and learn a lot about their emergency response system, which was really interesting for me as a nursing student.

What advice do you have for future students considering study abroad?
Go! Don’t let fear hold you back because you will be fine and will regret passing up this opportunity!!

- Peyton (studied abroad in Ireland)


 

Why did you decide to study abroad?
I wanted to study abroad to meet new people and immerse myself in a completely different culture. I wanted to go to Asia specifically to get a new perspective on the western life that I find so familiar.

What is something you gained from the experience?
I got to make friends some of the most interesting people I have ever met. Since I went to an international school, almost all of the friends I made were from different countries. I was so lucky to have such a culturally enriching experience just by hanging out with my friends.

What advice do you have for future students considering study abroad?
Studying abroad helps make the world feel both bigger and smaller. I was completely amazed by everything I saw and was exposed to sights and cultures that I didn’t know existed, but I also gained the confidence and curiosity to know that I am able to tackle many more cultural experiences.
