Academics in Austria

Academics in Austria are no less rigorous than on campus back in Steubenville. You will learn from Franciscan University professors in classes taught in English. Nearly every major program offered at Franciscan allows for time spent in Austria, but you need to prepare well in advance with your advisor so your academic needs are met while studying in Austria.

Students with Disabilities

Franciscan University encourages all students to study in Austria. Our Austrian Office and our Student Academic Support Services (SASS) work to make this unique study abroad opportunity available to all. The key to a successful adventure in Austria is advanced planning. Learn More at SASS »
