Semester & Academic Year Programs
Endicott students can choose from a portfolio of approximately 30 study abroad locations and will receive Endicott credits for the courses they take at their host institution. Endicott's programs are run directly through the host institution or through a top-notch study abroad program provider.
CIS-Endicott International (CIS) -- As Endicott College's sister campus in Madrid, Spain, CIS programs are targeted to students pursuing different degrees such as Business, Communications, Marketing, International Relations, Nursing, Hospitality, Sport Management, Interior Design, and Liberal Arts, among others. CIS provides academic programs taught in English, with specific courses taught in Spanish. The College is a meeting place for students from all over the world. They share both academic and social activities, which makes CIS unique among study abroad program destinations. This integration, along with a meaningful experience living either with a host family or in a residence, prepares all students for life in an increasingly international, global community.
Endicott partner programs allow for studying alongside local and international students at prestigious institutions around the world. The methods of teaching and assessment at foreign universities are significantly different from those in the United States. These programs provide the highest level of academic and cultural immersion and require a great deal of self-sufficiency and independence on the part of students. The support networks reflect the cultural values and style of the host university and do not mirror Endicott’s administration.
Endicott Affiliate Programs are administered by highly respected study abroad organizations approved by the university. Students enroll in courses designed for American study abroad participants and typically follow an American model of teaching and assessment. Students may have the option to take some or all courses at foreign universities with local and international peers, in which case teaching and assessment methods are very different from those at American universities.
Students seeking to study abroad during the fall semester will have an application period of late-August through early-October, and students seeking to study abroad during the spring semester will have an application period of late-January through early-March. Application deadlines may vary by program in order to meet the needs of the overseas host institution. A list of all Endicott study abroad programs can be found here.
