1. Can I receive Computer Science credit for courses taken overseas?

Yes, provided that the courses offered by your chosen study abroad program are closely related to Computer Science requirements.

2. Is it possible to take one of the "core" Computer Science courses abroad?

We encourage students to take their core courses at Brandeis. In particular, for those contemplating study abroad, it is strongly recommended that they take their core courses before going abroad. In the special case of someone who begins the major late, permission is sometimes given to take one (but only one) of the core courses abroad.

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. Computer Science majors 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 current liaison for Computer Science is Prof. Mitch Cherniack. Please note that this position often changes every year.

Students wishing to receive Computer Science credit for work done off campus during the academic year should discuss their desired coursework with their study abroad liaison for Computer Science.
