Queens College Education Abroad

There is no better—or more enjoyable—way of learning about the world than through travel. In fact, Queens College encourages all students to leave New York City at some point in their academic careers, whether or not they speak a foreign language; many classes are offered in English. Study Abroad options range from relatively short summer and winter intersession courses to programs that last a semester or a year.

Winter 2016 Program application is now open
Deadline is October 26th
