Academics

Finding course offerings abroad:

  • This document provides links to course offerings at our partner institutions.
  • Hajim students: also check out previously-approved study abroad courses by country or major when choosing your courses.  Note that these are courses that have been approved in the past and are not the only courses that can be approved.

Read the applying credit page and speak to Authorized Faculty about how to apply the courses you’d like to take abroad.

Students are required to have an officially declared major prior to studying abroad during the academic year. Details about the process can be found here.

Before studying abroad, you must register for Study Abroad Status and also register for courses abroad through the program or university.
