Study Abroad at Holy Family

Each year, Holy Family University partners with EF Educational Tours to travel abroad for trips that explore culture, healthcare, education, art, biodiversity, history, and geography.

The trips are open to Holy Family students, family, and friends, and the packages include flights, lodging, ground transportation, many meals, guides, and tours. 

We encourage our community to take advantage of these trips. Even a short-term study abroad experience provides students with a broader global perspective, enhanced critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and an opportunity to experience art, history, world politics, second language, and cultural interactions in a living classroom.

  • Study Abroad Experience in South Africa Speaks to the Souls of Holy Family Travelers

    You learn a lot about yourself when you are submerged in 58-degree waters in a steel cage, miles offshore from the Southern-most tip of Africa while a school of five, 11-foot-long female copper sharks swim five inches from your face.
