Welcome to the Education Abroad Office!

Studying abroad is one of the best ways to acquire global and intercultural skills.  Research has shown that students that study abroad have greater self-confidence and maturity, have better grades, and graduate from college at higher rates.  Take advantage of the opportunity to take UMBC courses that apply to major, minor, and GEP requirements while also engaging in what many students call the most meaningful experience of their undergraduate education.


Up-to-date information on study abroad during the COVID-19 pandemic is  available here
