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.
