Student Travel

Making the Investment

Yes, study abroad experiences are an investment—but guess what? You can often travel for virtually the same cost as attending on campus at Florida Southern. In some cases, you may actually pay less.

Travel Guarantee

Through our Junior Journey program, every new full-time undergraduate student is guaranteed a domestic or foreign travel learning experience to study in exciting locations around the world. Travel to the Caribbean, Costa Rica, England, France, Italy, Mexico, Washington, D.C., or other exciting destinations! You’ll benefit from a priceless experience that connects you with other FSC students and professors — and especially with the world around you!

We’re preparing you to make positive and important contributions to our increasingly globalized world, and study abroad experiences are an essential part of that foundation. That’s why Florida Southern is so committed to making this opportunity available to you — often at no additional cost beyond your usual FSC tuition! Our experienced team will work through every detail with you to make your trip a reality.

A World of Options

Florida Southern offers a range of study abroad experiences—just choose the one that’s right for you! Whether you go for a few weeks, a summer, a semester, or an entire year, you’ll learn in ways you never thought possible. You may opt for a program sponsored by Florida Southern or pursue an adventure through one of our travel partners. To get started, contact FSC’s Office of Student Travel!

Life Skills

Travel study experiences are a fantastic way to see the world, practice language skills, and connect with others from around the globe — all while earning academic credit! Study abroad will teach you about the world, boost your confidence, make you more self-aware and independent, stretch your comfort zone, and connect you with others who are like you … and those who are not. You’ll use these valuable skills throughout your life!

The Taiwan trip was amazing and the experiences we had were profound. I am so happy that FSC has these opportunities set in place for us, because this is a place that I would’ve never gotten to see, hear, and taste if it weren’t for the Junior Journey Experience — Jade Ferrell, Taiwan May 2018
