Study Abroad

Our students participate in Boston College's programs and international partnerships in Austria, Bulgaria, China, Germany, Israel, Japan, Korea, Morocco, Nepal, Philippines, Poland, and Russia. Summer, semester, and year abroad programs are managed by the Office of Global Education. 

Bulgaria (Veliko Turnovo)  

Boston College students participate in the International Summer Seminar for Bulgarian Studies in Veliko Turnovo (Велико Търново) where they study Bulgarian language and culture to supplement our own courses.

Germany and Austria, Study or Work Abroad

Students can study in a German-speaking country for a year, a semester, or a summer, with recommended programs in Eichstätt, Berlin, Heidelberg, Frankfurt, and Vienna. Preferably, students study abroad during their junior year. Students should consult German Studies faculty in addition to the Office of International Programs to learn about the requirements for each specific program. Courses taken abroad in German may be accorded major or minor credit: up to 12 credits may be applied to the major and 6 credits to the minors.

Only German majors and minors are eligible to apply for popular internships, which place Boston College students with companies in Germany every summer. Students are paid through their job and/or through Boston College internship grants and other fellowships.

Students apply for the elite Fulbright program starting the spring before their senior year.
