Many sociology and anthropology majors broaden their understanding of other cultures and societies by studying abroad. Dozens of approved study abroad programs award anthropology or sociology credit. These programs span the globe, including options in Africa, Asia, the Americas, Australia, and Europe.
These study abroad programs tend to fall into two broad types. In the first, more common type of program, students enroll in classes at a foreign university. A second program type emphasizes independent learning, includes more limited classroom time, and may be capped by a weeks-long independent research project.
In exploring your options for study abroad and the credit transferal process for any particular program, consult staff at the Hubbard Center for Student Engagement and your major advisor.
