You are encouraged to include a study-abroad experience in your undergraduate education. It is advisable to get an early start exploring the international programs available. The Office of International Programs located in Rockefeller Center in Hinman College Community is the place to begin and where you will find information on study-abroad programs and applications.
Allow sufficient time to gather recommendations, transcripts and approvals. If you are applying for a study-abroad program, you should meet with the CCPA academic adviser to review the number of credits available for transfer to the CCPA degree. A personal statement should be submitted to the CCPA academic adviser for review and signature.
You must also obtain a Petition to Take Credits at Another Institution from the Peer Advisers’ Office and submit it to the academic adviser.
Be sure to respond to registration information sent to you while abroad. See the Office of International Programs web page for more information at http://www2.binghamton.edu/oip/.
The International Studies Certificate Program is offered to students in any school and pursuing any major at Binghamton University. You may focus on one country or geographic region and study the language and culture of that area. The certificate requires satisfactory completion of components in foreign language, international focus distribution courses, experiential learning and a one-credit independent-study portfolio.
