Getting Started

You’ve heard your classmates and friends talk about their experiences studying abroad, and you’ve decided you don’t want to miss this exciting opportunity. You’re ready to explore a new culture, meet new people and expand your knowledge of the world, your academic field and yourself.

So now what?

There are nearly 600 Binghamton and SUNY programs available. You’ll discover that each study-abroad opportunity offers different academic challenges and cultural immersion experiences. There are options in English or in foreign languages, and you can choose to stay within your major or explore new subjects for elective credit. Some programs are based at foreign universities, where you will be fully integrated into the foreign university-community, while others are programs in which you are housed and take courses with other American students. Some programs take you out of the classroom for field trips, volunteer work and hands-on opportunities within your field, while others challenge students with award-winning professors and exciting academic and research opportunities.

Sound overwhelming? We are here to help.

Here are some easy steps to get you started: particular majors and areas of the world.  We will begin another round of general and topical information sessions at the beginning of spring semester.

Feel free to come back and see us, give us a call or send an e-mail any time during the application and pre-departure process!
