Welcome to the Study Abroad office at Rhode Island College!

Make your experience unique at RIC by adding an international component to your degree!

Customize your experience abroad no matter your major by studying or interning abroad in a country of your choice. Become immersed in different cultures while taking courses taught in English. Take the opportunity to strengthen your foreign language skills. With our programs, you are able to go abroad during the summer break, for a semester or a year.  

The purpose of the Study Abroad office is to guide you towards the right program, assist you with your application, and help to transfer your credits.
