Plan Ahead...
As a history student, you can study abroad during almost any semester in your college career. And with opportunities for multiple elective credits in the major, you can study abroad and make progress towards your degree. History students in the College of Education and Human Sciences should begin planning for study abroad with their advisers as soon as possible. All history students should discuss study abroad options with your adviser and the department chair.

The best time to start planning for study abroad is your freshman year. You will probably want to take at least one history course 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 history major requirements.

Nearly as many students study abroad as juniors. Now you may be more focused on upper division history courses or electives.

You can still study abroad during your senior year, although you will need to choose your location carefully to ensure that you can take specific classes you need for graduation.

Fulfill Graduation Requirements
General Education: General education credits can be fulfilled on almost all study abroad programs.

Major requirements: History courses are offered at the universities listed below. With advanced planning, you will be able to earn credits for your history major.

Minor requirements: Depending on your minor, you may also be able to take courses to fulfill those requirements abroad.
