Enriching student development

Bates sponsors a vigorous off-campus study program through which over 60 percent of juniors and a smaller number of students in other classes study abroad each year.

Our program is distinguished by its variety of offerings: courses with time off-campus taught by Bates faculty during Short Term, our Fall Semester Abroad programs with Bates students and faculty, and study abroad for a semester or year on select programs and at foreign universities across the globe.  The program is also distinguished by its diversity of participation with students from all majors, interests and backgrounds participating.

Please explore the Off-Campus Study website or visit our office in Roger Williams Hall to find out more about these exceptional opportunities for study and teaching.
