The McMahon Aquinas Chair and Study Abroad Opportunities

Study Abroad

 

Saint Mary's College is most fortunate to be one of a few, very prestigious Catholic colleges and universities in the United States to have been invited to participate in the Overseas Student Programme at Blackfriars Hall, Oxford University.  This program provides intelligent and motivated students with a special opportunity to spend up to a year studying at one of the world's most storied universities (Oxford), as well as at one of the world's most famous centers for the study of St. Thomas Aquinas and the Catholic intellectual tradition in general (Blackfriars Hall).

For more information about the opportunities available to Saint Mary's students at Blackfriars Hall, Oxford University, please contact Dr. Michael Waddell, the Saint Mary's faculty coordinator for the Blackfriars Overseas Student Programme, or visit the Saint Mary's study abroad webpage.

For now, perhaps a few pictures will whet your appetite...
