There is ample time to complete the major course requirements, even if a student chooses to study abroad; in fact, many of our majors study abroad each year. Frequently, courses taken abroad can be applied toward the major as distribution requirement or electives; it is less common for study abroad classes to count as seminars. Before you go abroad, be sure to meet with your advisor to review the courses you intend to take. Finally, if you plan to apply for the Honors Program, be sure to speak with potential thesis advisors about projects that you would be interested in pursuing. If you will be abroad during the Spring semester of the junior year, don't forget to fill out an application for the Honors Program.
