Study Abroad Opportunities

Students in the department have the opportunity to study abroad in programs related to African American Studies for a semester (fall or spring), a year, or a summer. The department offers recommendations for programs students may enjoy, but there are no restrictions on eligible programs. Many programs and universities admit students on a rolling basis, but others have deadlines far in advance of desired travel. In addition to being accepted into a study abroad program, students must attain approval for the program from the Department of African American Studies. Final approval to study abroad is given by the Committee on Examinations and Standing.
