We encourage majors and minors in all of our areas of concentration to gain global perspectives on American Studies. There is no better way to do that than by studying abroad.

The Study Abroad Office facilitates all study abroad programs designed and offered within the College of Arts and Sciences and operates undergraduate student exchange programs. Undergraduate students who wish to receive credit for study abroad may do so only on officially sanctioned UNC–Chapel Hill programs.

There are currently study abroad programs available in more than 70 countries, and they come in various forms, including summer, semester, and yearlong.

American Studies faculty continue to identify and strengthen relationships with universities throughout the world that have established curricula in American Studies broadly conceived or in one of our areas of major concentration.

Julia Preston Brumley Scholarship

Study Abroad supports student travel through many scholarship opportunities. In addition, American Studies majors and minors can take advantage of a special scholarship.

The Julia Preston Brumley Scholarship honors the memory of Julia Preston Brumley, a UNC graduate who was raised in Chapel Hill and passionate about traveling abroad. She studied at the Sorbonne in Paris during her first year at UNC and at Manchester University in England during her senior year. A plane crash in Kenya tragically ended her life at the age of 42 in 2003.
