Please Go Away!

Majors and minors in the Department of History are strongly encouraged to study abroad because personal familiarity with foreign cultures is increasingly useful in an ever more interconnected world. Students interested in off-campus study should meet with their academic advisor or the History Department chairperson as early as possible. We encourage those students considering study abroad for their entire junior year to take the History Workshop (HIS 360) in the second semester of their sophomore year at the College.

When you're ready to begin planning your journey and applying to programs, attend a Starting Points meeting at the Office of International Programs.

Majors and minors in the History Department have participated in the following programs in recent years:

  • Advanced Studies in England, Bath, England

  • Hood College's Coastal Studies Program

  • Syracuse University in Strasbourg, France; Madrid, Spain; and Florence, Italy

  • Sarah Lawrence College programs in Florence and Paris
