The world is waiting for you to explore

At some point in our lives, we all dream of traveling.  Whether it be to seek out new adventures domestically or abroad, make new friendships, experience new cultures or simply gain new memories, there is something for all of us.  Here, at the University of New Haven Office of Study Abroad, we would like to help make these dreams come true and give our students the experience of a lifetime.

We currently have the following featured opportunities for students:

University of New Haven Campus - Prato, Italy:
Freshmen in TuscanyThe University of New Haven opened its first international satellite campus in Prato, Italy in the fall of 2012. The historic city of Prato offers University of New Haven students an authentic Italian cultural experience. Prato, the second largest city in the region, is just 20 minutes from Florence and one hour from Pisa by train.

While experiencing life abroad, students will have the opportunity to enroll in five classes taught by both University of New Haven and Italian faculty. All University of New Haven tuition and fees remain the same as if students were attending our main campus in West Haven, Connecticut - the only difference in price is the cost of airfare!


CEA Global Education:
Cliffs of MoherIn 2006, University of New Haven President Steven H. Kaplan and CEA CEO Brian Boubek signed an agreement through which the University of New Haven became CEA’s “school of record.” Through this partnership, students who complete courses at CEA Study Abroad Centers – located in Barcelona, Buenos Aires, Dublin, Florence, Paris, Rome, Seville, and Shanghai – earn University of New Haven credits on University of New Haven transcripts.

Criteria for faculty hire, course design and approval, course credit and grading, and student assessment are consistent with those on the University of New Haven campus and with the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (CIHE/NEASC), which approves the School of Record agreement. In addition, a standing University of New Haven committee reviews and approves:

  • all faculty and directors at CEA’s eight Study Abroad Centers;
  • all CEA Study Abroad Center courses taught by CEA staff; and
  • all significant course modifications.

CEA produces a self-study for each Study Abroad Center on a fixed schedule, followed by a rigorous on-site team review conducted by the University of New Haven and utilizing (as of 2011) an external evaluator.

We encourage you to explore all of our programs, including our third-party provider opportunities.  From the program menu, either by clicking the link or in the menu bar above, you are able to search for programs based on a number of criteria such as term, location and major areas of study.

When looking at a program brochure page, you will be able to see important program information and either ‘Request Information’ or ‘Apply Now’.  When you click Apply Now you will be directed to the Application to Study Abroad.  Please note that for most of our third-party providers, the process itself consists of 2 parts: 1) Applying with the provider directly 2) Completing an application using the apply now button in the program directly to fulfill the University of New Haven Requirements.

To set up an appointment or discuss your interests with any of our staff members, please email or visit the Study Abroad Office located in Kaplan 210 (Building 11 on the campus map found here) during our office hours.
