St. John’s students can study abroad during summer vacations, gap years, or the year after graduation. In order to facilitate student participation in study abroad opportunities, we have compiled a list of the many different resources that students will want to make use of in the study abroad plans. We also encourage students who are interested in these opportunities to stop by the Career Services Office for more advice.
CAPA International Education

"Our approach to international study is unique and provides a holistic learning abroad experience that challenges, excites and inspires students like no other program can.

The Marchutz School of Art
The Marchutz School of Art, in Aix-en-Provence, France, strengthens students’ ability to see and to be more aware of the relationship between perception and artistic expression. Painting in the environs of Cezanne’s beloved mountain, Sainte Victoire, students enhance their creative work with the weekly seminar, which combines art history, theory, and practice. The Marchutz program welcomes people at all levels of art experience who want to look deeply into nature, the art tradition, and into themselves.
Many St. John’s College students and tutors have spent time at the Marchutz School, and one of the current faculty members is a GI (Santa Fe) graduate. Scholarships and special seminars may be available for the summer sessions.
