Off-Campus Study

Program Options List

LeftMiddleRight

Students are normally expected to select from the options list, which is designed to meet the great majority of academic needs. The programs on the list, over a hundred in number, have been used successfully by Bowdoin students in the past and continue to be recommended by academic departments. (The term program is used conventionally for any of the many types of option on the list, from direct university enrollment to programs that run all their own courses; a large organization, such as API, Arcadia, CIEE, IES, IFSA-Butler, etc., that offers several programs is sometimes referred to as a program provider.) We select the most suitable program for our needs in any location to which more than an occasional student is likely to need to go. The list excludes programs whose curriculum is too dissimilar to Bowdoin's to offer enough courses for which credit can be transferred; or whose housing and social arrangements do not permit Bowdoin students to become properly integrated into the institution and the culture of the host country. We keep our knowledge of programs current through student evaluation forms and faculty visits. Programs may be added to or removed from the list as more appropriate opportunities emerge.

Follow the links from the options list to the programs' and universities' websites to research their offerings and see whether the program is suited to your own strengths. Most of these programs (and some universities) focus on or are strongest in specific disciplines, and will not be appropriate for all students. In the OCS office, you will find lists of students from each major who have participated in the various programs we use, and their printed program evaluations and general advice. Work closely with the staff of the OCS Office and with faculty in the department of your intended major(s). Please also bear in mind, especially if you went to the October Off-Campus Study Fair, that most study abroad organizations run numerous programs and publicize them widely, but you will almost never find all of any organization's programs on Bowdoin's list, as we either have insufficient experience with them or have identified more suitable options.

Programs are listed by region. "Period" indicates the Bowdoin academic period for which there is an option of equivalent duration. (F=fall, S=spring, Y=full year; letters in parentheses if restrictions exist.) Take care to find out the exact term dates, including exams.
