The Office of Global Affairs is pleased to make available to you the SHU Study Abroad Course Equivalency Database.

This document will assist you in determining which programs will best meet your academic needs. It includes an extensive list of courses available at partner institutions, which courses are SHU approved, and which courses fulfill SHU’s Foundational and Thematic Core requirements.

This slide show will give direction on how to search and filter the database. We look forwarding to working with you as you get ready to study abroad!
