Each department or program within Arts and Sciences has been asked to appoint a Departmental Study Abroad Advisor. In consultation with other faculty, the advisor will develop policies and guidelines for study abroad relevant to their department.
Each Departmental Study Abroad Advisor is asked to:
- Act as the point of contact for students, faculty, and the Overseas Programs for information regarding study abroad opportunities that are appropriate for the majors/minors within the department.
- Inform and advise individual students as they plan to study abroad, while they are abroad, and upon return, including preliminary approval of the study plan and evaluation of the completed course work, leading to award of Washington University credit.
- Help set departmental policies and guidelines regarding study abroad options, performance expectations (including the portfolio/project requirement), and integration with major/minor requirements.
