Many English majors
at JMU take advantage of the opportunity to study abroad as part of their academic experience. Students can
choose from a variety of programs, which transpire over the course of a semester,
an entire academic year, or a summer. Many programs regularly offer courses
that can count towards the English major.
Information on Study Abroad programs is available from the Office of International Programs. JMU English majors may participate in semester-long Study Abroad
programs in Antwerp, Beijing, Cambridge, Florence, London, Oxford, Salamanca, or St. Andrews.
Students may elect to participate in one of a range of short-term Study Abroad Programs. These program offerings change each year, so check back to see the latest offerings. Students may also elect to enroll in a Study Abroad program at another university and transfer credits from that program to JMU.
