Honors Credit for Study Abroad
Honors students may receive up to three Honors elective credits for studying abroad. If additional study away transfer credit is received in the Quantitative Literacy, Lab Science, or Artistic Experience areas, the honors program counts that credit toward the honors track as well. As a way to study and document the cultural learning that occurs outside of the classroom, Honors students keep a journal or blog while abroad, and use their daily experiences to write an 8-10 page paper on the pre-determined interdisciplinary topic. A presentation of paper topic is hosted by the Honors community during the term following semester abroad. To receive Honors study abroad credit, students must submit the Honors Study Abroad Credit form prior to the proposed study abroad experience.
