Study abroad opportunities
Exchanges available to ESS students
Depending on your degree combination, you could arrange a study abroad semester (or year) through the department or program you’re combining with ESS.
For example, if you’re doing a double major in ESS and International Development Studies (IDS), you’ll have opportunities to study in Africa or Cuba through the IDS program. You can choose either the Cuba Intensive Program or the longer option, the Cuba Semester Program. But both are open to all students, not just IDS majors.
If you’ve chosen a double major in ESS and Spanish, German, or French, you’ll have various options to study abroad. The Department of Spanish has student exchange partnerships with universities in Salamanca, Spain; Campeche, Mexico; and Havana, Cuba. The Department of German has exchange partnerships with a university in Freiberg, Germany, as well as with universities in Poland and Hungary.
If French is your other major, you might study in Dijon, France for up to a year, or in Dakar, Senegal for a semester; other opportunities for study in Quebec or Martinique are offered from time to time.
Through the Department of Russian Studies, you could spend four months at Saint Petersburg State University, taking intensive classes in language, literature, culture, and history.
