Education Abroad


Social Science Majors and Minors


Study abroad programs offer a far greater diversity of social science courses than can be found on an American campus. These programs are designed to immerse students in the economics, politics and anthropology of many cultures. Nearly all UR-sponsored programs offer courses in the social sciences and humanities. Students may petition to use a course taken while abroad towards a cluster.

What can you experience abroad that you can’t study at UR?

Most programs feature regular field trips to historic sites, organizations, and museums of all kinds. If you have already traveled, you know that reading about the Second World War is a very different learning experience from visiting the beaches of Normandy or even visiting London’s Imperial War Museum. They’ll find Urban Studies in Shanghai, South African History in Cape Town and Politics of North Africa in Morocco.
