The Department of English encourages study in other countries, prior to the senior year, to increase understanding of English language and literatures from diverse cultural perspectives. Past English majors have studied literature, language, and culture in Korea, Venezuela, South Africa, France, Italy (Florence, Milan, Rome, etc.), England (Lancaster, London, East Anglia), Greece, Austria, Egypt, Australia, Scotland, Japan, Ireland, Germany, and other countries. Planning for international study requires conversations with CLA and English major advisors prior to your trip to help you coordinate credits earned abroad with your degree program.
For information specifically on learning abroad for English majors see the Study Abroad Major Advising Sheet (PDF). Contact the Learning Abroad Center, 230 Heller Hall (612-626-9000) for information on available programs.
The LAC also offers a variety of programs and opportunities for returning students, including the chance to share stories with past and prospective travelers.
The English Department is proud to present a new blog entitled Tales from the Road that offers undergraduate students a chance to submit creative works about their experience abroad.
The LAC offers semester-long and summer courses as well as internships of particular interest to English majors.
