Follow the @ECStudyAbroad Twitter feed to the right for more on the student experience, as well as valuable advice, dates, and deadlines.

If you’re interested in studying abroad, start planning a year or more before departure, so you can plan academically and financially. Students in highly-sequenced or double majors or who plan to spend a year abroad should plan as early as their freshman year. Emmanuel partners with the Colleges of the Fenway and the COF Terra Dotta website is a resource for study abroad. Students will apply through this database, but students can contact the Office of International Programs for advice in choosing a program and for information on all available programs. Interested students should contact studyabroad@emmanuel.edu or stop by our office in the Administration Building, Room 325C.

Vision Statement

Recognizing the vital role Emmanuel College plays in sparking student interest in service and the advancement of justice and peace, as well as instilling a comprehensive understanding of how cultures and beliefs interact on an international scale, the Office of International Programs lists four integral components to accomplishing its mission:

  • To work with faculty, staff, administrators, and domestic and international students to provide the student body with opportunities for cultural competency development and growth
  • To provide faculty with the training, guidance and resources to plan, develop and lead short-term programs abroad
  • To collaborate with the Emmanuel College community to ease the cross-cultural transition of international students and to advise these students on how to ensure their continued academic and social success while making significant contributions to overall awareness of international issues on campus
  • To develop new domestic and international programs that would allow Emmanuel College to extend its classroom to areas beyond the Boston metropolitan area and present students with new opportunities for personal and academic growth
