Study Abroad Opportunities

The Department of American Studies urges all its students to plan for a study abroad semester.
Those of us who look closely at our own culture can benefit especially from living and working
in another culture. And a study abroad experience can be integrated with your major if you
choose a study abroad program at one of our partner institutions where you can study American
Studies from “outside the box.” You will receive credit for some of your major courses
(including a substantial portion of the requirements for the International American Studies
concentration), study in English, and learn alongside international students. Your work can help
you prepare for a senior honors thesis and expand your options for study. Most importantly, you
will live in another country and experience a different culture.

Please see the Director of Undergraduate Studies, Professor Timothy Marr, or Professor Robert
Allen, Interim Chair, for more information.

Here is a list of partner institutions we urge you to consider. The links will take you to the Study
Abroad website where you can explore each option more thoroughly.
