Expand Your Boundaries.
Bay Path University believes that acquiring greater international awareness and deeper understanding of other languages, cultures, and peoples by studying in a foreign country is key to preparing you to meet the personal and professional challenges of living and working in the global world.
With our Study Abroad Program you can immerse yourself in another culture and take classes in such far-away places as Ireland, France, or Australia. Working with the Bay Path Study Abroad coordinator, you will map out a plan that best fits your academic and personal goals and is offered at the appropriate time in your schedule.

"I spent a semester at Accademia Europea di Firenze (AEF) in Florence, Italy. I had the chance to have many adventures and trips to other parts of Italy and Western Europe. I was one of 20 American students studying at AEF. Classes were Monday through Thursday with Italian every morning at 9am. I had two Italian classes: grammar and conversation. I also took Art History Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons, which enabled us to see so many different, beautiful pieces of art and history. One day in class we got to go see Michelangelo's David, it was amazing! Those three months in Florence were some of the best months of my entire life. I highly recommend studying abroad if you get the chance!"

"Aloha! I was fortunate enough to spend a semester on the beautiful island of Oahu, Hawaii. I studied at a Roman Catholic school named Chaminade University of Honolulu. It was definitely the best four months of my life! I was able to learn a new culture, meet different people, and enjoy the adventures that Oahu had in store for me. From the minute I got off the plane in Honolulu, people gave me a very warm welcome; always smiling and sharing their “aloha” with me. My favorite class was Forensic Entomology, which was based on how to figure out an estimated post-mortem interval using the different insects that stay behind on the body. It was definitely an experience I will never forget. Even though I was still in the U.S, it felt like a different world. If you ever get the chance to study abroad, anywhere, do it. Mahalo!"
