Purchase College, in collaboration with SUNY and international partner institutions, is developing innovative study abroad, online, and international dual-diploma and degree completion programs that promise to serve as a model for global undergraduate education. Building on the college’s successful study abroad programs, these international initiatives are being designed to attract a significant number of new international students to Purchase, enriching the cultural diversity of the campus community and offering Purchase students distinctive opportunities for global education.
Studying in another country often becomes one of the most treasured experiences in a college education. Language and culture can be studied in an American classroom or perfected in the streets and cafes of a foreign land. Seeing an unknown part of the world and gaining a new perspective on an area of study can greatly enhance a student’s education. Viewing the United States from another region of the world can enrich a student’s understanding of his or her own country, major, and self. In addition, experience abroad can open new and unexpected career options after graduation.
Hundreds of study abroad opportunities are available through Purchase College, other SUNY campuses, and affiliated schools around the world.
For students interested in studying abroad, the Office of International Programs and Services also offers a preparatory course, Going Global: Intercultural Communication.

SUNY Center for Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL)
The SUNY Center for Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL), headquartered at the SUNY Global Center in New York City, embraces the globally networked landscape of academia by supporting collaborative, online, international learning as a means to internationalize curricula, build global partnerships, and help prepare our students for global work and civil engagement. Originally conceived and developed at Purchase College, COIL engages faculty and staff across the SUNY system and in numerous countries, helping them develop courses that are team-taught with an international partner. Students enroll in these courses at their own institution and meet online with their peers abroad, working together within a course module or over a full semester. Several COIL courses have been taught at Purchase College.
