Can I study abroad or find a global opportunity if I'm a _______ major?
Yes! Our office does not restrict participation on global opportunity programs by major. We encourage any and all students to find a program that fits into their schedule - this requires speaking with your academic advisor to see when a good time might be to study abroad or find another off campus opportunity. Some majors might have more strict curriculum requirements than others (a certain series of courses you need to take, only offered at certain times, etc…), but we've found that with flexibility and planning ahead, all sorts of students are able to find off campus programs that work for them. Check out Choosing a Program for additional information on determining your ideal program.
