You must complete three credit hours in an overseas studies course that includes graduate content and is approved by the director of graduate studies. This must be completed before your examinations.
The overseas study course can be completed by:
- Enrolling in an overseas study course offered by the Office of Overseas Study
- Creating your own overseas study course. You may arrange your own travel and lodging and decide on the length of time to conduct research. Upon returning, you should enroll in an independent study course with an AAADS professor. Your professor will communicate what you will need to do in order to receive a grade for the overseas study course.
- Creating an overseas study course with a professor with whom you will work. Please note that if you travel with a professor, you both must notify Overseas Studies to make sure policies are followed.
Please notify the DGS about which option you select to fulfill the overseas study requirement.
