What could be better than summer in Paris or Rome? Sunny
days and warm Mediterranean nights make summer a perfect time to
study in Europe.
And what’s more appealing than visiting Beijing, the epicenter of
Chinese art and culture?
This year, St. John’s University can help make studying in one of
these ancient cities happen for you by offering a $1,000 deduction
in tuition when you take two courses!
That’s it! Just register for six credits in any Global Studies
program, for example Paris or Rome, and St. John’s will
automatically deduct $1,000 off tuition. In addition, in an effort
to keep summer programs affordable, the University is keeping this
year’s program fees the same as last year’s. Where else could you
get such a deal?
And this summer’s programs are to die for!
At St. John’s new
Rome campus, take part in excursions to Paestrum, Pompeii,
Florence, Siena, and Assisi during
Summer Session One (May 29-June 29). Immerse yourself in
Michelangelo’s Italy, studying art and Italian with St. John’s
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences professors. Get down to
business with International Tourism Management, an Italian
Approach; Emergence of Modern Sport, or Special Topics in Sports
Management, International Perspectives; or Business Management and
Strategy; each taught by a College of Professional Studies faculty
member. No matter which courses you choose, you’ll be getting a
decidedly global outlook on the subject.
Summer Session Two (July 3-August1), you can take Introduction
to Mass Communications: Italy and pair it with one of several
courses in Art. Remember: six credits equals $1,000 off!
Paris is on sale too! At the University’s new
Paris site, you can take part in a joint program between
Journalism and Media Studies and the Department of Languages and
Summer Pre-Session (May 18-June 5). Take both a French
Class—either French 1010 or Intermediate French Conversation:
Emphasis on the Media—as well as Media, Culture and Communication:
France and ka-ching! You get $1,000 off your tuition.
Or picture yourself in the City of Light for
Summer Session One (June 8-July 2), where you could mix a
French language course with an art or music course, all taught by
St. John’s faculty. That’s six credits earned, $1,000 off the cost
and Paris for almost three full weeks. Imagine sketching the Eiffel
Tower for your art project or practicing your French on a waiter in
a Champs Elyseé bistro. What’s not to love?
If the thought of studying in
China intrigues you, St. John’s has the summer program for
From May 19-June 6, you can journey with faculty from our
Institute of Asian Studies Peking University in Beijing and
Zhejiang University in Hangzhou. Take your pick among courses in
Chinese language, finance, sports, economy and more while you spend
almost three weeks immersed in China’s culture. Above all, you’ll
be able to engage the people of China. Once again, take two courses
and get $1,000 off your tuition.

experiences this summer. The world is waiting for you! Let St.
