Semester and Year Programs

The 200+ opportunities for study abroad can be searched by geographic region, country and special academic interest. Each program page is linked to its sponsor’s web site where more detailed information is available and to student evaluations (2007 and later). To access these evaluations log in (lower right corner of each page) with your Bates user name and password. Student evaluations prior to 2007 and program brochures are available in the Off-Campus Study Library in Roger Williams Hall.  In addition, students may contact juniors and seniors on campus with recent evaluations.  All the information is subject to change. These pages are intended exclusively for use by the students, faculty, and staff of Bates College.  All students must meet with Mr. Das or Dean Sawyer in the Off-Campus Study Office to discuss these opportunities and the Bates application process.

Background information, including safety and health information, is available in the Pre-Departure Planning section of the web site. The U.S. State Department, Bureau of Consular Affairs web site provides the latest “Consular Information Sheets,” “Travel Advisories,” and “Travel Warnings.” The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has a similarly informative site for health and immunization issues.
