Study Abroad Options
There are three different ways to study abroad and get credit towards the Honors program:
1) You can substitute a semester (or, in some cases, summer) abroad for a Foundational Interdisciplinary Sequence. Click here for more information.
2) You can go on one of the Honors faculty-led programs. In Spring/Summer 2017, there are three such opportunities:
a. Ghana Program, Cultural Exchange and Service Learning. For more information click here.
b. Nicaragua Program. For more information, contact Prof. Paul Lane at email@example.com.
c. Haiti Program: Water, Environmental Issues and Service Learning. For more information click here.
3) You may substitute a course you take abroad for an Honors requirement such as a Social Science course or a Junior Seminar. See the curriculum checklist for options. You must get approval from the director of the Honors College to make such a substitution.
