STM Global

STM serves as a global center of Catholic thought and action, reflecting Boston College’s goal—and the enduring Jesuit ideal—to work for the transformation of the world. Through a range of programming, we reflect an ever-evolving Church and work to provide resources that meet the needs of all of our students.

Immersion trips, supervised ministry placements, and coursework allow students to venture to a variety of places, from Latin America and the Caribbean to Rwanda, Uganda, and the Holy Land. We also welcome international fellows to research with us, and in 2017 we hosted a first-of-its-kind gathering: Hispanic theologians from the U.S. and scholars from Latin America and Spain convened to discuss theology within the contexts of globalization, socioeconomics, and cultural integration.

Throughout everything we do, we endeavor to be a truly international community that informs conversations and challenges students to continuously examine their values and actions as our world becomes increasingly global.

Global Footprint


It's not just a few students from Europe and Africa; there are people here from Asia, Europe, Africa, South America, and Australia. It's a very rich community. Meeting people from so many different places helped me to adjust to a new country, too.
