Study Abroad

Experiencing a different culture first hand not only enriches your undergraduate career, but can transform your entire life.

Bay State College is a partner of CIS Abroad to offer a variety of opportunities for students to study abroad. Through these programs students can customize their study abroad experiences to best match their academic, career and travel interests. Semester, winter, and summer programs are offered. Language skills are not required for most locations prior to your departure but will be a part of your studies when you arrive. All programs are offered in English and provide not only classroom instruction, but also various cultural and language development activities. Moreover, these exchange programs may be combined with internship opportunities to enable students to gain invaluable international work experience.

If interested in going abroad, it is strongly encouraged to explore the current programs offered by CIS Abroad and to consult your Advisor or Program Chair. Students who have completed at least one semester and/or two (2) terms, earned at least 12 BSC credits, and are in good academic and judicial standing at Bay State College while being enrolled in a degree program are encouraged to apply.

Bay State College requires students have a minimum of a 2.5 cumulative GPA at the time of application and at the start of their desired term abroad, however, some programs may request a higher GPA requirement. Additionally, students are not eligible for Bay State grants or scholarships during a study abroad semester. 


Students who wish to apply for the Bay State College Study Abroad Program are to complete and submit the Application Form to Jeremy Shepard, Dean of Students, at jshepard@baystate.edu.
