Studying Abroad

The Department of Religion welcomes study abroad for departmental majors in their junior year. Those juniors who have compelling reasons to study abroad in their fall semester should meet with the departmental representative about their plans, including plans for satisfying the junior colloquium and their preparation of their Junior Paper proposal.

Juniors who study abroad in the spring semester will write the required spring junior paper under the supervision of a religion department faculty member. This spring junior paper will constitute 60 percent of the junior independent work. Normally, students are expected to have junior year independent work completed before the start of their senior year.

Students must consult the Departmental Representative before leaving for their study abroad program.

The website of the Office of International Programs is a good resource for finding approved programs, getting information on procedures for applying, and for department-specific advice about going abroad, including a list of programs through which majors have studied in recent years and contact information for peer advisors from the Religion Department.
