Study Abroad Opportunities

  • College majors may be interested in the various faculty-led Study Abroad Programs, as well as those offered through the Office of International Education.

    Credits earned through study abroad are normally  applicable toward a Humanities and Social Science degree (students should speak to their advisor about getting courses approved before their time abroad).

    There are several credit-awarding programs offered through the College of Humanities and Social Sciences: for example, at Valladolid (Spain), and Nancy (France), as well as the the Oxford Summer Study Abroad program.

    For information, contact the appropriate faculty members listed below.

While not a faculty-led program, students do work with a departmental faculty advisor to arrange their classes and living arrangements prior to going on the program. Students take a variety of classes depending on their level of language proficiency, and can usually transfer credits back to IUP to be used for Spanish major and minor requirements.
