Study Abroad for Health Promotion 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.
  • The Department of Health Studies recommends that Health Promotion students study abroad during their junior year or during the summer of any school year. The decision when to study abroad should be made in consultation with the student’s academic advisor.
  • Students need to let their academic advisor know as soon as possible about their desire to study abroad so they can meet to discuss their study abroad goals and how to fit this experience into their specific academic program and graduation requirements.
  • Even after courses abroad have been equated to courses at AU, students must review final course selection with their academic advisors.
  • It is recommended that students complete at least 80% of their general education requirements before studying abroad.
  • It is recommended that students plan with their academic advisor to complete AU Core requirements on campus before or after studying abroad.
  • There are no limits of credits that can be applied to the major. The student, however, should receive approval from the academic advisor about credit transfer.  To receive Health Promotion credit for any courses taken abroad, you must have the courses approved by the Department of Health Studies before you take them. Retroactive approvals will not be given.
  • Internship opportunities may be available to fulfill the internship requirement of the Health Promotion major but it is rare. Please consult with your academic and study abroad advisors for more details.
