Study Abroad Liaison

To assist students with their academic choices abroad and to help answer any questions about receiving major/ minor credit while abroad, each academic department and program has assigned a faculty member to serve as the Study Abroad Liaison. Majors or minors who plan to study abroad should speak with the study abroad liaison before they go abroad, and again once they have returned from study abroad.

The liaison for African and Afro-American Studies is Prof. Faith Smith. Please make an appointment with her to discuss the major and study abroad.

Receiving Credit in African and Afro-American Studies

Students wishing to receive credit in AAAS for coursework done off-campus during the academic year should discuss these plans with the study abroad liaison and when returned from abroad should download the Petition to Request Substitution for a Requirement form. After filling out the form and gathering the necessary paperwork, please make an appointment to meet with the study abroad liaison.
