BSU Travel Courses
Travel Courses are short-term, faculty-led programs that are open to all BSU students, non-BSU students, as well as BSU community members, as space permits. Programs are usually 1-3 weeks in length, but participants should plan for class meetings and academic work before, during, and after the scheduled travel dates in order to fulfill 3 BSU course credits. Programs are led by BSU faculty and courses focus on a particular academic discipline and include relevant excursions and cultural activities. Participants must have a minimum 2.5 GPA and be in good academic standing.

Take a quick look at our updated list of Travel Courses for 2018.

To search for a Travel Course, go to the BSU Study Abroad Office Database and in the Program Search area on the bottom left-hand side, change Program Type to Internal Programs.

BSU Exchange Programs
BSU students can participate in one of our semester exchange programs. This is a cost effective option because students pay BSU tuition and fees and pay room and board to the host institution. Exchange programs often allow students to immerse themselves in the local culture as they will take classes at a foreign institution alongside students from the host country as well as other international and study abroad students. Participants must have a minimum 2.75 GPA and be in good academic standing.
