The College of Engineering and the International Programs Office are committed to making study abroad opportunities available to students. The highly structured, sequential nature of engineering curricula is often the biggest obstacle to students studying abroad for a semester. In response to this challenge, we have identified program options available to second-year, spring semester students. While these are not the only options available to students, these programs have been pre-approved by the college in an effort to facilitate the study abroad process.

The Semester in Cyprus program is hosted at the University of Nicosia, the leading university in Cyprus. Students select up to five courses from the School of Business, School of Humanities, Social Sciences and Law, and School of Sciences and Engineering. In addition to the academic coursework, students participate in a series of educational trips and cultural excursions within Cyprus. The excursions and cultural events ensure that students visit major cities in Cyprus, develop a relationship with the local culture and enhance their intercultural competencies.

Why study abroad?

  • Strengthen your global perspective
  • Become a more dynamic problem-solver
  • Expand your employment opportunities
  • Enhance cross-cultural communication skills

More affordable than you think

Many students assume that studying abroad is expensive and therefore not an option. Before ruling out this unique educational opportunity, evaluate how much you are spending to attend UMass Dartmouth per semester. Tuition & fees

Studying abroad in Cyprus was by far the best decision I have ever made. This little Mediterranean island allowed me to experience a culture very different than my own. Not only does this experience make my resume stand out, but it also has changed my life forever.
