There are many wonderful options all over the world for History Majors to study abroad. This page contains information that will assist History Majors in determining how to integrate study abroad into their Brandeis careers.
Generally, students who study abroad for one semester have no difficulty completing the History major. Those who choose to study abroad for an entire year may need to work with their advisor or the Study Abroad Liaison to develop a plan that will allow them to finish the major on time, but this is very possible.

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. History 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 History is Prof. William Kapelle
Students wishing to receive History credit for work done off campus during the academic year should discuss their desired coursework with their study abroad liaison for History. After returning from abroad, complete the electronic Petition to Request Substitution for a Requirement form.
