For Students

Study Abroad

The Department of Anthropology (ATY) participates in study abroad opportunities organized through the International Programs Center (IPC).

Anthropology majors generally study abroad in their junior or senior year to earn credit in the major at the upper level of coursework. However, students need to be mindful of when required courses are offered such as ATY 363 (Theory) and ATY 495 (Capstone) so as not to delay progress towards graduation. Sophomore students may be interested in going to earn credits towards their general education requirements. Popular places to study include Australia, Denmark, Finland, Great Britain, Hong Kong, Italy, Germany, New Zealand, Northern Ireland, South Korea, Sweden, with new opportunities opening as international programs at UNCG continue to develop.

If you wish to study during the summer in France or Spain to achieve credit for your general education foreign language requirement, contact the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures.
