The International Education Center

The International Education Center provides support services to Brookdale students interested in studying abroad and to international students attending the College. In addition, the Center promotes internationalization of the campus through its varied programs and services.

Study in another Country! - Brookdale’s International Center offers over 90 study abroad programs year round in Asia, Africa, Central, North and South America, Europe, and Oceania.  The credits students earn in these programs can be transferred back to the Brookdale Degree. Programs range from two-weeks up to a semester or a year.  Students do not have to speak a foreign language to study abroad, and there are programs for almost all academic majors.  To participate in a semester or year abroad, students must be 18 years old, have completed at least one term of college studies and have a minimum GPA of 2.5. The Center’s faculty-led short-term programs are open to anyone 18 years or older.  Financial Aid can be applied to study abroad programs. Students with disabilities are encouraged to apply.

International Student Services - The Center provides support services for approximately 165 international students representing 45 countries. The Center handles international admissions, pre-arrival services, orientation and on-going immigration and cultural advising.

International Events - The Center sponsors or co-sponsors international and intercultural events primarily on the Lincroft campus. Activities include films, lectures, excursions, and the international festival. Most events are free and open to students, faculty, staff and community.

Academic Programs - Brookdale offers an Associate’s degree with an emphasis in International Studies. Interested students should consult the Academic Programs  section of this catalog for more information about this option. Brookdale students can also participate in the Global Citizenship Distinction Initiative, an academic recognition program that is open to all majors.
