Study Abroad Programs
The Department encourages foreign study. Information and advice can be obtained from the Study Abroad Office. Advisors will encourage you to meet your College of Liberal Arts & Sciences foreign language requirement in a way that relates to your geographical and cultural interests. If, for example, French history is your passion, then you will be encouraged to study the French language. Alternatively, if you already have a working knowledge of French, it makes sense to choose at least some French history courses that will benefit from your language skills. Advisors will also encourage you to pursue study abroad opportunities that accord with your foreign language and historical-geographical interests. All things being equal, wouldn't you like to polish your study of French history with a semester of study at the Sorbonne in Paris or to further pursue Japanese history while a resident in Tokyo?
