Study Abroad for Literature Majors

NOTE--The list below contains recommended options only. Students are not limited to just these programs! For a comprehensive listing of options, complete university descriptions, and course listings, please visit AU Abroad brochure webpages.
 
  • Students may study abroad between their second semester of sophomore year through their senior year. The Literature Department recommends that students study abroad during their junior year.  Students opting to study abroad during senior year must complete the capstone and thesis requirement during their junior year, and therefore must plan other elements of the major as far ahead as possible. Majors opting for the Transcultural Studies track within the major are especially encouraged to study abroad.
  • It is recommended that students complete at least 80% of their general education requirements before studying abroad.
Literature majors can count up to six credit hours of pre-approved courses, taken while abroad, towards their upper level major course requirements. Additional courses under consideration for credit must be pre-approved by the Director of Undergraduate Studies.

If you are pursuing either the Cinema Studies minor or the Cinema Studies track within the major, you can go abroad! Check out our growing list of film programs available at numerous institutions around the world.
