The distinctive Jesuit, liberal arts education that you get at Holy Cross cannot be replicated anywhere else. But some Holy Cross students look to dive deeper into a work environment or a specialized field of study, and that can lead them off campus for a brief period.
Holy Cross offers two flagship Semester Away options: the New York Semester Program and the Washington Semester Program. In both, students combine an intensive internship experience with a distinctive academic course and a capstone project. Through the Semester Away Program, students looking for academic courses not offered at Holy Cross may also propose to study for a semester at another United States college or university.
