SoSS STA Program

The Summer Term Abroad (STA) is the newest student mobility program in the School of Social Sciences. Starting 2015-2016, SoSS will deploy incoming sophomore, junior and senior students during the summer term (June-July) of the new academic calendar.

STA innovates various SOSS academic curricula, weaving the Ateneo school summer calendar (June-July) with that of the partner institutions to allow students to experience academic and multi-cultural life abroad. Through this student mobility program, SOSS aims to produce graduates with a sensitivity to various social realities and deep experience of how to be part of the global community.

Students participating in the program are expected to be ambassadors of goodwill.  In representing the Ateneo, they are expected to live by magis, cura personalis, and service; as Filipinos, they are likewise expected to have a deep sense of self and nationhood exuding confidence and discipline.
