Mathematics 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. Mathematics 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 liaison for Mathematics is Prof. Ruth Charney.
