About 60% of each junior class studies off-campus. Off-campus programs complement the Bates curriculum, providing on-site experiences – from Morocco to Mongolia, China to Czechia, Greece to Ghana – and opportunities to delve deeply in the study of complex global issues – from public heath to political economies to climate change and social movements. In addition to semester and year abroad, students in all classes can study on Short Term off-campus courses, taught by Bates faculty, around the US and the world, or join a Bates faculty-led Fall Semester Abroad (FSA). The Center for Global Education is here to help you explore your options, expand your horizons, and make international study a part of your Bates degree.
