Study Abroad

Baylor University encourages all students to participate in one or more study abroad programs during their time at Baylor. Studying in another country often offers the student a chance to gain a complete view of the world through travel and contact with individuals from cultures different from one's own. Baylor University offers a wide range of opportunities to study abroad.


American University in Cairo

For Arabic and Middle East Studies, students will find an exceptional opportunity to study abroad at the American University in Cairo. This fully-accredited university, established in 1919, attracts students from all over the world. Its various curricula offer courses in the Arts and Sciences, as well as in business. Naturally, its coursework in Middle East studies is particularly strong. Additionally, because of its outstanding language program, the U.S. State Department selected the university for its CASA initiative, the Center for Arabic Study Abroad.
