Study, internships, work or volunteer experiences abroad can greatly enrich a major or minor in Political Science as well as a student's overall college experience. Many students report that study abroad is the highlight of their college careers. We urge you to take advantage of one or more of the hundreds of opportunities available worldwide. Political science majors and minors have studied in Europe, Africa, Latin and Central America, the Middle East, China, India, and Australia as well as American Samoa and the Caribbean. The world is yours to explore.
Find general learning abroad information, including available programs, advising, financial aid and scholarships, policies and procedures, and application materials at the Learning Abroad Center in 230 Heller Hall. You will want to review the Major Advising Page for more information on programs that offer a strong focus on political science. For information specifically on learning abroad for Political Science majors and minors see Rose Miskowiec, the Department of Political Science adviser, in 1482 Social Sciences.
Make sure you have an Academic Planning for Study Abroad form (PDF) on file with your advising offices to ensure your courses will easily transfer back to the U of M and satisfy your degree and major or minor requirements.
Early planning and systematic consultation with advisers in the Learning Abroad Center and the Political Science Department are key to assuring you:
