Global perspective

Through a variety of study-abroad, service trips and global seminar courses, our students have numerous opportunities to work across America and around the world — like these Quinnipiac students studying in Barcelona.

Global Opportunity

You’re in good company

At Quinnipiac you’ll join an extensive network of programs and partnerships that extend your reach across the United States and throughout the world. Work with Nasdaq to put on the largest annual, student-run financial conference in the world. Intern at NBC Entertainment, Nickelodeon or the Conan Show in our semester-long QU in LA program. Study the Irish Famine at Maynooth University in Ireland and at our Great Hunger Museum, which houses the world’s largest collection of Famine-related visual art and artifacts. We'll connect you with unique environments where you'll apply your learning, acquire professional skills and learn about yourself in the process. 

Where in the world?

Quinnipiac offers opportunities for global learning in these places and many more around the globe. The only question is, where will you go?

International Service Learning

Learn about yourself while making an impact

At Quinnipiac we integrate instruction and reflection with meaningful community service. From Ghana to Guatemala, our unique approach uses service learning as a way of teaching civic engagement and providing hands-on practical training.


Learning happens around the world. Each year, students from our schools travel around the world to gain different perspectives. Here, nurse anesthetist students learn from doctors at HEODRA Hospital in León, Nicaragua.

Gil is looking for ways to improve upon efficiency, safety and noise levels at the manufacturer.

Start building your career before you graduate

We make an extraordinary effort to place our students into internships. We have developed trusted relationships with nearly a thousand companies, firms, hospitals and organizations throughout the Northeast and beyond to give them the kind of practical, hands-on learning they simply cannot get in the classroom alone.
