Faithful to the values of peace and social justice that inspired its founding in 1962, BCA Study Abroad facilitates opportunities for growth in intercultural understanding and global awareness through educational programs that foster scholarship, community engagement and guided reflective learning.
We offer a fully comprehensive study abroad experience with university-based academics, home-stays and university housing, excursions and experiential learning opportunities in more than 15 locations around the world. Our on-site staff ensures the safety and well-being of each student and provides cross-cultural education in the historical, social and cultural context of the host country.
As an organization committed to peace and social justice, we believe that our core values of mutual respect, empathy and inclusivity form the foundation of the supportive, immersive learning experiences we strive to provide.
We believe that meaningful engagement with people different from ourselves helps us to grow as individual members of a global civil society that affirms the dignity of all. We hope to inspire and empower our students to constructively and creatively engage the complex issues facing our world today by working alongside others to build a more peaceful, just world. In doing so, students expand their skills and grow in their knowledge of themselves, others, and the world around them.
