Study Abroad

Aiming to provide students with an education that branches out beyond the walls of our institution, Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC) has sponsored overseas learning opportunities since 1973. BMCC Study Abroad Programs expand the students’ educational experience, enhance curricular offerings, as well as support the educational mission of the college. In addition, BMCC Study Abroad Programs foster multicultural awareness and understanding while encouraging the exchange of knowledge and empowering students to succeed within the current framework of global relations, studies, economies, histories, and cultures.

The Borough of Manhattan Community College Study Abroad team is committed to promoting international academic experiences. Our programs are all faculty-­‐led. These programs allow our students to further explore their academic interests at an international level. For summer 2015, BMCC will sponsor six international programs.

Studying abroad for a short term, semester, or year helps strengthen your:

  • Earn general education credits
