Get started on your adventure

We strive to cultivate the intercultural competency of our students, empowering them to embrace the rich diversity of world cultures. Through our robust portfolio of international opportunities, students will develop the cross-cultural and leadership skills essential to succeeding in an increasingly global society.

We offer more than 90 different international experiences, including semester and academic year abroad, faculty-led travel courses, internships, and volunteer abroad. Our study abroad and international programs open up a world of academic and professional opportunities, and once-in-a-lifetime adventures.

As a member of the Colleges of the Fenway, a collaborative of five neighboring Boston-based colleges and universities in the Fenway area, you'll have even more opportunities to study abroad.

"The study abroad office at Simmons helped me figure out which opportunities and paths of study I most want to pursue. I decided to study in Granada, Spain for a month. I would go again in a heartbeat."
