Bryant's international focus delivers opportunities including our innovative Sophomore International Experience and abundant study abroad programs.
At a time when the world is more interconnected than ever, your Bryant experience will guide you on a journey of discovery as your global perspective develops. From the very first semester, your interests will be matched by cultural programs, extensive study abroad and travel opportunities, and a wide variety of co-curricular offerings designed to help you understand the dynamic intersections of different worlds. With a full range of globally-oriented coursework and internships, you’ll explore diverse viewpoints as you learn to challenge assumptions and develop creative solutions to address the interconnections of nations, cultures, and economies.
Bryant’s nationally recognized First-Year Gateway is the foundation for intercultural knowledge. Centered on fundamental questions about the role of the individual in an ever-changing world, the interdisciplinary Gateway sets the stage for you to explore the global foundations of character and leadership, and of organizations and business.
When it comes to life-changing programs, Bryant students frequently cite the 3-credit Sophomore International Experience (SIE), held during winter and summer breaks, for its firsthand introduction to cultures and commerce in other countries. So that you’ll get the most from the experience, the course begins the semester before your departure with a survey of cultural norms, language study, historical reading, and art appreciation. Having the international experience early in your academic career may inspire you to pursue additional study abroad, and international internship, and/or a career with a global dimension.
Nearly half of all Bryant students receive academic credit in a wide variety of international locations. Students become global citizens as they enjoy study abroad opportunities in 52 countries and 291 locations around the world. Progressive international partnerships will enable you to apply your energy, knowledge, and skills in ways that span academics, business, and culture. China is a cornerstone of Bryant’s international strategy, and Bryant Zhuhai provides a bridge for students through our unique partnership with Beijing Institute of Technology Zhuhai.
