A semester abroad can be a wonderful life-changing endeavor that will add value to your Ithaca College experience.

Each year, the Office of International Programs at Ithaca College sends 500+ students abroad.

Ithaca College students study on semester-long and short-term study abroad programs with the goal of providing students with quality international experiences. Study abroad has been shown to effectively foster global citizenship as well as other valuable intercultural competencies that students can use both personally and professionally throughout the course of their lifetimes.
