Study Abroad Liaison

To assist students with their academic choices abroad and to help answer any questions about receiving minor credit while abroad, each academic department and program has assigned a faculty member to serve as the Study Abroad Liaison. Social Justice and Social Policy 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 Social Justice and Social Policy is Prof. Melissa Stimell.

Receiving Credit in Social Justice and Social Policy

Before going abroad, you can find out whether a specific course will or will not count as a Social Justice and Social Policy elective by speaking with the Study Abroad Liaison. In order to formally request credit for the course, you must contact your Study Abroad Liaison upon your return to Brandeis and after you have received a grade for the course. The final step would be to fill out a "Petition to Request a Substitution for a Requirement."
