Plan Ahead...
As an English student, you can study abroad during almost any semester in your college career with advance planning. And with opportunities for multiple elective credits in the major, you can study abroad and make progress towards your degree. Discuss study abroad options with your English adviser.

The best time to start planning for study abroad is your freshman year. You will
probably want to take at least one English course at UW-Eau Claire in preparation for taking additional courses abroad.

The majority of UW-Eau Claire students study abroad as sophomores. You can fulfill both general education requirements and English major/minor requirements or program electives.

Nearly as many students study abroad as juniors. Now you may be more focused on upper-division program courses and electives. Consult with your adviser to understand when you must take required courses.

You can still study abroad during your senior year. However, you must consult with your adviser to understand how it may affect your graduation. Some required courses and the prerequisites might only be available at UW-Eau Claire in alternating semesters.
