Office of Global Programs

With the goal of furthering international education at UMass Boston, the Office of Global Programs is a valuable on-campus resource for international students, faculty, and staff, as well as scholars and other visitors.

Whether you are a UMass Boston student looking to study abroad, an international student planning to study at UMass Boston, a faculty member interested in transnational research, teaching and global-urban engagement, a department that wishes to bring visiting scholars to your department, a representative of a nonprofit or a university that focuses on international projects, a scholar hoping to come to UMass Boston for the International Visiting Scholar Academy (IVSA), or a visitor searching for workshops and seminars, the Office of Global Programs can help you.

The staff, advisory board, and research committees work to help faculty create transnational academic curricula that reflect the university’s global-urban context and commitment to international affairs while developing transnational and trans-disciplinary programs through teaching, research, community engagement, and university functions.

Check out Aims and Scope for more about the services that the office offers, or take some time to explore stories about the international experiences of UMass Boston students, faculty, and staff. Generation study abroad logo
