Study Abroad with the History Department

History students have many opportunities to study abroad, both in short-term programs and semester-long or year-long programs. These programs support deep academic and cultural learning.

Courses that are taken as part of a study abroad program may fulfill a degree requirement and, thereby, qualify for financial aid. For short-term study abroad programs, credit hours are offered at significantly reduced rates—well below in-state tuition costs. Students should also apply for additional scholarship support.
