Studying Abroad

The Sociology department supports sociology students who plan to study abroad, and every year, sociology majors opt to spend a semester learning in another country.  All courses taken abroad that the student intends to count for the major must be approved ahead of time by the Director of Undergraduate Studies. Sometimes the DUP will approve courses on a contingent basis until the student returns to the United States with a syllabus. Typically, courses taken abroad will only count towards the two 2000-level elective courses.
