History is an inherently global topic, as much of the world’s known history took place outside our landmass. Studying abroad is the perfect opportunity to research the past - in places that have centuries more information to examine. Studying abroad can provide students with different perspectives and problem solving skills, as well as a growing sense of independence that could be helpful in future endeavors.

See the list of recommended study abroad programs below.  Please be aware that for any external or exchange study abroad programs listed, students will need to check with their academic department to see if courses taken while abroad will transfer and fulfill needed requirements.
