Study Abroad

Rebekah Yerker Study Abroad

For history majors, it can be a valuable educational experience to live and study abroad in another country. History majors are encouraged to consider exploring both short-term and long-term opportunities to study abroad. 

If you are interested in studying abroad, please discuss it with your advisor as soon as possible to determine whether or not it will fit within your course of study. 

For more information about study abroad opportunities and resources,  please click here for the link to Shippensburg University's International Programs Office.
