Study Abroad by Bates Students
Off-Campus study at Bates is managed through the Off-Campus Study Office, according to policies set by the faculty, administration, and the Off-Campus Study Committee. Approximately 60% of Bates students study off-campus once or more while at Bates. The goal of the Off-Campus Study Office and Committee is for these experiences to be integral to, and supportive of, the student’s overall academic program at Bates. Information on all these options and the related College policies and procedures are available in the Off-Campus Study Office and in the online section for Bates students.
We welcome calls, emails, and visits from faculty with observations about off-campus study programs, questions about College policies and procedures, or other matters regarding this important part of the Bates curriculum. Our office is located in 124 Roger Williams Hall (786-6223).
