First Year Students

 The earliest you can go abroad is the summer of your first year.
 Students may fulfill General Education Foundations and/or Issues requirements abroad.

 

Sophomores & Upperclassmen 

  • Check out Anthropology Field Schools and Internships!
  • Students may take courses that satisfy some requirements in Anthropology for the General Education program. Be sure to begin planning at least six months in advance.
  • Students do not need to speak a foreign language in order to study in a country where English is not the official language.
  • An internship abroad will not only give students experience and insights into their specific field of interest, but will help them develop desirable cross-cultural skills and competency.
  • Consider fulfilling your Issues General Education requirement abroad. Find out how!

 

RESTRICTIONS

KEEP IN MIND
