Bowdoin College Catalogue and Academic Handbook

Off-Campus Study

The Office of International Programs and Off-Campus Study prepares students to “be at home in all lands” through advising and programming that promote intentionality and integration to broaden and enrich the Bowdoin education. Whether off-campus study occurs abroad or in the United States, students are encouraged to participate in off-campus study as an extension of the on-campus educational experience, and expectations are that the courses in which students earn credit toward the degree be in a field of study characteristic of the liberal arts and be academically engaging and complementary to their studies at Bowdoin. Students contemplating off-campus study for the semester, academic year, or the summer should consult the Off-Campus Study website.
