Creighton University offers a variety of study abroad opportunities all over the world. The Global Programs Coordinators work closely with each student to select a program that meets his or her educational, professional, and personal needs. All students planning to study abroad must obtain approval from the Global Engagement Office (GEO) by applying through the Jays Abroad portal on the study abroad website. To allow as much time for research and exploration as possible, it is recommended that students begin planning their study abroad experience one year in advance of their term abroad.

Study Abroad and International Program Options
Creighton partners directly with institutions around the world to host students for a semester or full academic year. Students are integrated into the host culture and usually take courses alongside local students. Most programs offer English-instructed coursework, with additional course options available in the local language. Classes taken abroad are pre-approved, factor directly into a student's GPA, and worked into a student's unique educational plan. Creighton-In partnership locations include Australia, Germany, Italy, Belgium, South Korea, Japan, Ecuador, and many more! For a current list of Creighton-In programs, visit the study abroad Jays Abroad portal.
Faculty-Led Programs Abroad (FLPAs)
Faculty-led programs abroad are short-term courses led by Creighton faculty and taught in locations around the globe. Programs range in length from 2-6 weeks and students may earn 3-9 credits during their faculty-led program. FLPA programs vary from year to year, but past FLPA locations include: Australia, Canada, Ireland, Spain, Peru, and more! A list of current FLPA options is on the study abroad Jays Abroad portal.
