University Information

Study abroad can be one of the most rewarding experiences of a student’s life. Experiencing another culture and language and seeing an unknown part of the world while gaining a new perspective on an area of study can be life changing. Equally importantly, students can gain a new perspective on the United States by seeing it from a foreign vantage point. And without question, students will gain insight into their studies at Purchase College. In addition, experience abroad may open new and unexpected doors upon graduation and thereafter.

On campus, visit the study abroad office on the second floor of the Student Services Building to research options available around the world, or attend the study abroad fair in the fall or one of our information sessions. We would be happy to advise you, make recommendations and help you plan for your sojourn abroad. You may also contact International Programs and Services on the Purchase College campus for more information at study.abroad@purchase.edu.
