Find your Advisor

Each A&S department has a Departmental Study Abroad advisor who can help determine what major or minor credit you can bring back to apply towards a degree. They will also help you complete the Study Plan which is part of the application process. The study plan is a PDF that will be available to students when an application on the Study Abroad Portal is opened. It will need to be signed by the appropriate Departmental Study Abroad Advisor(s) in the department(s) that you seek major/minor credit from the study abroad experience. (Learn more about Academic Requirements here). Please check the directory below to find the appropriate advisor(s).

Because I had the opportunity to go abroad on two very different programs to two different countries and regions in Europe, I have really become an expert on the European abroad experience. Both of my programs allowed me to study very different topics, ranging everywhere from gender and sexuality studies, to art history, and religious studies.
