Where do Assumption students go?

Some of the most frequently visited sites include:

- Madrid or Barcelona
- Rome or Florence
- Costa Rica
- Semester at Sea program, which includes stops in China, Hong Kong, Vietnam, India, Egypt and Turkey

Business Studies majors and minors can enhance their program of studies with extended travel abroad, acquiring valuable international business experience, and sharpening language skills. Often students are able to earn money teaching English, while learning a foreign language, such as in Japan.
