SMITHFIELD, R.I. - Bryant University ranks among the top 15 colleges and universities for undergraduate participation in study abroad programs, coming in 14th in its Carnegie classification (Master's colleges and universities).
The rankings were released in the Open Doors Report on International Education Exchange, published annually by the Institute of International Education in partnership with the U.S. Department of State. Rankings are based on the percentage of graduating seniors who participated in a for-credit study abroad program at some point in their undergraduate careers. For academic year 2009-2010 (the most recent data available), 369 of Bryant's graduating 805 seniors - or 45.8 percent - had taken part in a study abroad program.
