Welcome to Study Abroad and International Internships
The education philosophy at Soka University of America (SUA) is to create relevance between classroom study and real world experiences. A unique aspect of the curriculum at SUA requires that all students participate in a semester studying abroad during their junior year. The cost of Study Abroad is included in SUA tuition.
SUA strives to enrich a student's intellectual grasp of the world in all its diversity. Study Abroad provides students with the opportunity to further acquire the qualities and mindset of a global citizen. Students return to the SUA campus with a network of friends and associates with whom they may nurture deep bonds and lifelong relationships.
The Study Abroad & International Internships (SAII) Office carefully selects programs throughout the world. SUA students study Chinese, French, Japanese, or Spanish and have internationally-diverse programs to choose from within their language of study. SUA faculty work alongside the SAII Office to determine the academic content of each program. Study Abroad courses are taught at a local university of recognized quality and international distinction.
