Study Abroad with CCBC!

Study abroad programs are available for a wide range of destinations and academic interests.

CCBC offers short-term faculty-led study abroad programs in January, spring break, and late May. Most programs are six to ten days long. Students may connect study abroad to their course work or may participate without an associated course. Financial aid and competitive scholarships may be available for qualified CCBC students.

CCBC students, faculty, and staff, as well as students from other Maryland colleges and universities are eligible to apply. Limited seats may be available for guests and other non-CCBC participants.

Regularly scheduled information sessions will resume in the fall semester. Advising during the summer is available by appointment »
