Study Abroad Programs for Students


Whether you want to improve your foreign language skills, add an international flare to your program of study, or explore another country for a few weeks with fellow Brookdalians, the International Education Center (IEC) has a program that suits your academic and personal needs.

Through the College Consortium for International Studies (CCIS), Brookdale offers over 80 exciting programs in 27 countries lasting from four weeks to an entire semester.  In addition, we offer short-term programs, led by Brookdale faculty, lasting between 7-14 days. You can also complete your bachelor’s degree abroad. The IEC is devoted to helping you achieve your academic goals both here and abroad!

Regardless of where you go, you’ll find great friends, new “family”, and touches of home—even in the most unlikely of places!
