International Education at SAU

Don’t just step through the world. Immerse yourself, fully, in the world. Study abroad.

Wherever you are standing, look around. See the people, the place, feel the energy that surrounds you. Then, envision what lies beyond. Way beyond. 

Study abroad lets you experience the world, explore a new culture, and gain perspective. The conversations you'll have with your classmates abroad, the celebrations and traditions you'll take part in across the world, and the community you'll join will help you understand that what makes us different also brings us together in a marvelous, enriching way.

Our International Education staff works with students from outside the U.S. and those wanting to Study Abroad or join the Peace Corps Prep program.

Student to Teacher Ratio

A professor is an educator, but at SAU, our professors are so much more. Our students are drawn to our small classes, one-on-one attention, and the priority placed on their education by the educator that stands before them, and walks with them, throughout their undergraduate career.
