Honors & Study Abroad
The Honors Program strongly encourages and supports students to study abroad. In addition to the range of study abroad options available through the Office of International Programs, Honors students can choose from two programs which enable them to earn Honors credit through their study abroad experience:
Three-week programs in May/June designed by the Honors Program. Students earn six academic credits (which fulfill the Honors seminar requirement) through a course of study in a new and exciting part of the world. Current and upcoming destinations include London, Florence, Barcelona, and South Africa.
Study abroad for a semester or full academic year at one of Britain's oldest and most respected universities. Honors students receive special Honors credits for study at Oxford and St. Andrews.
Follow the above links for more details about these programs. Students should consult with the Honors Academic Advisor to learn more about coordinating study abroad and Honors requirements. Students may arrange Honors option elective credit for other JMU-affiliated study abroad programs. All students participating in any program that requires them to be off-campus for a semester or academic year are required to notify the Honors Program one semester prior to leaving.
