Foreign Study - General Information
If you are participating in a non-history department foreign study program through International Programs and Exchanges and wish to receive UW credit through the History department, you need to bring your I.P. & E. credit-evaluation sheet (it's currently orange), as well as a course description and syllabus to our office for evaluation. We may also need to see your coursework, if the syllabus does not demonstrate sufficient historical methodology, themes and assignments, or if you are seeking more than five credits for a course.
History courses taken abroad may not count toward the 30 credits of upper division in-residence history required for the major, nor towards the last 45 of 60 residency requirements.
History majors interested in studying abroad should apply for foreign study scholarships, available every spring.
For general questions about foreign study credit, please contact the History Undergraduate Advising Office.
